New Compound Found 

Pierre Bellegarde 

Once again, 
Centenary College will 
be making history by 
having the privilege to 
receive on its campus 
one of the greatest 
speakers of the United 
Kingdom, the 
Honorable George 
Thomas, who will be 
guest speaker at the 

Convocation which will 
be held September 16. 

The President's 
Convocation is the first 
convocation held at the 
beginning of each 
semester, and 
according to Dr. Donald 
Webb, "Its purpose is to 
launch formally the 
academic year. It is a 
time of high moment 
when the faculty as well 
as everyone of this 
community comes 
together as a whole." 

The convocation v/ill 
be very special this year 
because of the fact that 
a Doctor of Divinity 
Degree will be given to 
speaker Georre 
Thomas which will a so 
be an honor for 

Thomas has a very 

background. He is 
known as a very 
distinguished stateman 
as well as one of the best 
Methodist Laymen in 
the Methodist Church. 
He has been a member 
of the British 
Parliament for almost 
40 years, representing 
Cardiff, the Capitol of 
Wales. For many years, 
he has been a leader in 
the Methodist Church, 
having served in the 
highest offices as the 
Vice-President of the 

Methodist Conference . 

As a leading 
politician, he has been 
to the White House 
several times. He has 
addressed the 
Presidential Prayer 
Breakfast and talked 
with Christians within 
both the U.S. Senate and 
the U.S. Congress. 

As the speaker of the 
British Parliament, he 
holds the oldest 
parliamentary office in 
existence in the world. 
He is the number one 
citizen after her 
majesty the Queen in 
the United Kingdom. 
For several years, he 
has served in many 
different offices in the 
British government. He 
has been the 
secretary, and has 
served in the home 

office. He was secretary 
of State for Wales 
during which he was 
responsible for the 
invest of Prince 

At the Royal Wedding 
of Prince Charles and 
Lady Diana, Thomas 
iniated a first in British 
history by reading the 
lessons in St. Paul's 
Cathedral for a royal 
wedding. He 
represented the free 
churches, the non- 
conformist churches of 
the United Kingdom. 

This will be Thomas's 
second visit to 
Centenary, and his 
program at the 

Convocation will surely 
be an enriching and

Leach said that 
nothing significant 
happened during the 
first six weeks of the 
research. In order to 
isolate the desired 
compound, the three 
chemists had tried 
distilling the mixture. 
But distillation only 
served to destroy it. 
When the researchers 
tried placing the 
mixture on dry ice, the 
long-awaited substance 
immediately separated 
out, crystallizing into 
what Leach described 
as "little flaky white 

The development 
process discovered at 
Centenary will probably 
be attractive for several 
reasons. First, the 
researchers have made 
the new initiator safe 
both to produce and to 
handle. They have 
demonstrated that it 
ca.i be derived 

inexpensively and does 
not require rare or 
exotic materials. 
Finally, the entire 
process takes a 
maximum of only two 

Tests to be given 

College seniors who 
plan to apply for 
graduate school may be 
interested to know that 
the following tests will 
be administered at 

Centenary in the 1982-83 
academic year: 

Graduate Record 
Exam (GRE) will be 
administered on 
Saturday, Oct. 16. 

AHve and healthy with 1432 

Fall enrollment at 
Centenary College is a 
healthy 1432, as of 
Wednesday, Sept. 1, 
according to John 
Lambert, director of 
admissions and 
financial aid. 
Registration continues 
through Thursday, Sept. 
16, when complete totals 
and distributions will be 

Of the total number of 
students enrolled, 976 
are undergraduate 
studnets, and 456 are 

graduate students, both 
increases over last 

"The enrollment 
situation at Centenary 
is indeed healthy," said 
Lambert. "Our goal 
was to increase the 
number of full time 
students, and we have 
done that. They are the 
students who can best 
utilize the benefits of 
Centenary's liberal arts 
environment. And we 
have not sacrificed 

quality in choosing our 
freshmen class. 
Centenary continues to 
maintain its reputation 
of academic 

This year's students 
come from over 25 
states and 15 foreign 
countries and have an 
average ACT score of 
21.0, compared to the 
nation average of 18.7 
and the state average of 

Registrations should be 
submitted by Thursday, 
Sept. 16. The test will 
also be given on 
Saturday, Dec. 11, 
Tuesday, Feb. 15, 
Saturday, April 23, and 
Saturday, June 11. 

Admissions Test 
(GMAT) will be 
administered Saturday, 
Oct. 23, and registration 
materials should be 
submitted by Monday, 
Sept. 20. The test will 
also be given Saturday, 
Jan. 29, 1983. 

Law School 
Admissions Test 
(LSAT) will be 
administered Saturday, 
Oct. 2. The test will also 
be given Saturday, Feb. 

National Teachers 
Exam (NTE) will be 
given Saturday, Oct. 30, 

and registration should 
be submitted by 
Monday, Sept. 27. Other 
dates for this test are 
Saturdays, Nov. 13, 
March 5, and April 30. 

materials for these tests 
are available from Dr. 
Lewis Bettinger, Room 
20A Magale Library 
basement, Centenary 

All of the tests require 
approximately six 
weeks for the scores to 
be reported, and since 
most graduate 
admissions decisions 
are made in February, 
it is probably a good 
idea to take the tests 
early. If you miss the 
test registration 
deadline, you may still 
be able to take the test 
by registering on the 
test day as a "stand-by" 
by paying an extra fee.

What is paved, black 
and covered with cars? 
The new parking lots on 
campus! Returning 
students might have 
noticed that it is now 
possible to walk from 
Lot 1 to their dorm or 
from lot 8 to the 
playhouse without fear 
of falling into a 
bottomless pot hole or 
getting stuck in the 
mud. Additional 
parking and access 

roads have been 
provided, making a 
drive through campus a 
safe and pleasant 
experience. The natural 
beauty of Centenary 
was retained by 
allowing for 
preservation of state 
pines and hardwoods 
that add greatly to the 
charm of the campus.

When asked what they 
considered Centenary's 
greatest disadvantage, 
many of the freshmen 
felt that it was the lack 
of a college football 
team. Other freshmen 
voiced that it was the 
lack of a swimming pool 
here at the college. Still 
others maintained that 
it was the food in our 
very own caf! What an 
absurd statement! 

Freshmen, when will 
they learn? 

The freshman class of 
1983 certainly has 
precise viewpoints of 
Centenary College. 
Hopefully, they will 
realize that they have 
the ability to change 
what they can about our 
campus and that they 
understand at the same 
time, that college life is 
nothing like home.

After graduating in 
1980 with a B.A. and 
certification in 
Christian Education, 
Turner obtained 
employment in 
Brownsville, Texas in 
the Mission Field 
Program sponsored by 
the United Methodist 
Church. Serving as a 
social worker, Turner 
was responsible for food 
dispersal, individual 
and group counseling 
and advising. The 
community of 
Brownsville that she 
worked with was 
primarily Hispanic in 
language and culture 
and Turner described 
the experience as 
"awesome, but 

Turner was not only 
involved in field 

experience while 
attending Centenary, 
but she also served as 
the President of James 
Dorm Council, was 
active in CSCC and 
participated in two 
Marjorie Lyons 
productions her senior 
year. She also worked at 
First Methodist in 
Shreveport during her 
first 2 years of school 
and her last 2 years 
were spent at First 
Methodist in Minden, 

Turner is no stranger 
to Shreveport as her 
parents live her and she 
has lived in the city for a 
number of years. She 
loves campus life and as 
a long-time resident of 
Shrevport and 
Centenary, she knows 

Centenary well. Turner 
is happy with the 
improvements that 
have been made in the 
Student Union Building 
and has "high hopes" 
particularly when it 
comes to keeping 
sucessfuly events in the 
student activities 
program. She also plans 
to add and experiment 
with new and innovative 
ideas. In fact, Turner 
has already planned 
Leisure Learning and 
Back to Basics courses 
for the fall semester. In 
addition, she and Vicki 
Rice, the Chairman of 
the SGA Entertainment 
Committee for 1982-83 
have already begun 
preparations for 
various activities. 
Turner is very 

enthusiastic about the 
coming year and asks 
that if you are 
interested in any of the 
programs or would like 
to see something added 
that she is open to 
suggestions. Her office 
is located in the S.U.B. 
(across from the Coffee 
House) and she can be 
contacted at 869-5266.

Choir begins year with 
Hodges Gardens Camp 

The Centenary 
College Choir 
celebrated its forty nrst 
choir camp at Hodges 
Gardens August 17-26. 
In fact, since 1957, all of 
the choir's summer 
camps with the 
exception of two have 
been held amidst the 
beautiful gardens. 

Eight hours were 
devoted each day to 
practicing, but the 
members found time for 
activities such as 
"skiing, swimming, 
football, and fishing/' 
according to John 
Yiantisas, choir vice- 
president. The 55 
member group, 
boasting with 17 new 
members, familiarized 
themselves with the 
coming year by 
memorizing 14 new 

ieces of music and 

being properly fitted for 
gowns and tuxedos. 
And, as director Dr. 
Will Andress firmly 
believes, the summer 
camp helps "mold choir 

Several tours have 
been scheduled, not only 
in Louisiana, but in 
Texas, Mississippi, 
Arkansas, and 
Oklahoma as well. The 
highlight of this year's 
performance though, 
will no doubt be the long 
awaited trip to China 
next summer. 

Ed Hall leads the 
choir as president ; John 
Yiantisas is vice- 
president; female vice- 
president is Lisa 
Davidson; Warren 
Morales is serving as

Break tradition 


Freshmen - there is a 
tradition at Centenary 
in which you need not 
participate. In fact, the 
Conglomerate staff 
wants you to have no 
part in it what-so-ever. 
The tradition is that of 
voter apathy (or any 
kind of apathy for that 

Voting is not that 
tough; it's rather easy. 
You see, there will be a 
couple of very friendly 
elections committee 
members behind a 
wobbly table in the caf . 
They will hand out the 
cute little slips of paper 
with the candidate 
name written in purple 
ink. Then the voter (that 
is the hard part) will 
look for a pencil or pen. 

After finding the pencil, 
the voter will mark an 
"X" beside his or her 
favorite candidate, and 
place the slip of paper in 
a box beside the 
elections committee 
members. Apparently 
theupperclassmen have 
not learned these simple 

Now there will be a 
chance to practice these 
new skills, Wednesday, 
September 15, when 
elections will be held for 
Freshman Senators. 
(The senate is that 
group of people that 
decides how your 
money is spent) So why 
not follow the preceding 
instructions, break 
tradition, and vote. 

The Conglomerate welcomes, 
enpourages letters from students, fa< 
and staff. Letters must be recc 
before 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

From the Wizard's 

As I write this, the 
semester has but barely 
begun. Orientation, at 
long last, is over. 

The hordes of 
huddling newcomers 
and protective parents 
have shrunk to a mere 
mob of mildly confused 
freshmen. The idle 
promises of the endless 
orientating sessions 
loom now as stark 
realities. That Oh-my- 
happening-to-me look 
seems permanently 
engraved on their faces. 
They've spent their free 
time wandering 
aimlessly around; 
transfixed before that 
always familiar face- 
the television; or 
endeavoring to find out 
where their advisor 
holds court (or, for that 
matter, just what an 
advisor is). 

After surviving all of 
that, they then find 
themselves subjected to 
the awesome rigors of 
registration. Registra- 
tion, that gloriously cheer- 
ful beginning to each new 
semester: endless long 
lines snaking sneakily 
in and out of the dark

corners of Mickle Hall; 
countless blank-faced 
workers forever 
chanting, "not this 
paper, the other one," 
and "no, I'm sorry. You 
missed Station 77; I'm 
afraid you'll have to go 
back to the beginning 
and do it all over 
again"; every class 
you've scheduled 
closing just before you 
get sectioned (or drawn- 
and-quartered or 
crucified or whatever 
they call it) while your 
advisor is no where to 
be found. And of course, 
that ultimate 
degradation once it's all 
over and done with, 
having a smug upper- 
classman walk up and 
say, "Registration? 
Just wait until you can 
pre-register. It's a lot 
easier. That's what I 

Once they recovered 
from that ordeal, they 
found a worse one 
awaiting them — buying 
their books. First of all 
they had to find the 
bookstore, tucked 
neatly away in its little 
dungeon out of harm's 
way. They wandered

Red River Revel to run extra day 

The seventh annual 
Red River Revel, a 
celebration of the arts 
on Shreveport's 
riverfront has added an 
extra day to its schedule 
for 1982. The Revel will 
open on Saturday, 
October 2nd, instead of 
the usual Sunday 
opening and run 
through Saturday, 
October 9th. The extra 
day will give Revelers a 
raincheck to make up 
for lost days due to bad 
weather last year. 

The Red River Revel 
Arts Festival, featuring 
more than 100 visual 
artists; continuous 
entertainment by over 
80 performing groups; 
international and 
regional food and 
educational and 
creative programs for 
young and old will 
attract more than 
250,000 people from all 
over the South. 
Admission is free. This 
year's celebration 
brings several special 
events to Shreveport, 
including Laserium, a 
concert uniting the art 
of music and science of 
lasers; hot air balloom 
races taking place over 
the first two days of the 
festival and the running 

of the five and ten 
kilometer Red River 
Revel Run on October 

The multi-media 
presentation of 
Laserium, produced by 
Laser Images, Inc., and 
presented in association 
with Cablevison of 
Shreveport and the 
Shreveport Regional 
Arts Council and 
underwritten in part by 
the Shreve City 
Shopping Center, is a 
composition of light and 
sound created by a 
"laserist", as he 
combines the two art 
forms into one, using 
projected krypton and 
argon lasers. 

Since its inception in 
1973, the production has 
been viewed by over 
nine million people, 
world-wide, and 
presented in theatres, 
planetariums, concerts, 
movies, and on 
television. Thirty-seven 
performances of 
Laserium have been 
scheduled over the week 
of the Revel, with all the 
shows taking place in 
the Civic Theatre 
adjacent to the festival 

The Red River Arts 
Education program 

brings aesthetic 
programming to 7,000 
fourth graders from 
local school districts 
with morning programs 
involving folk arts, 
print-making, and video 
workshops. Afternoon 
sessions are open to 
children of all ages and 
include story-telling, 
origami, papier mache, 
and construction of 
floating sky sculptures. 
Adult workshops are 
offered in photography, 
playwriting and 

As in the past, cooking 
demonstrators will be 
offering Revelers a 
wide variety of 
tempting recipes with 
which to experiment. 
Demonstrators this 
year include Judith 
Olney, author of a 
number of cookbooks 

Entertainments and 
The Joy of Chocolate. 
Ms. Olney has also 
worked as an 
Consultant for 
Time Life Books. 
Another out-of -town 
cooking demonstrator 
who will be preparing 
dishes for Revelers is

Opening the fall 
semester at Centenary 
College in the Meadows 
Museum of Art is a 
selection of major 
works from the 
permanent art 
collection of the College. 
Uiis is the first exhibit 
as a major permanent 
collection as it was only 
realized in the 1970's 
that Centenary 
possessed an art 
collection of importance 
with works representing 
all major periods and 
techniques. Many of 
these works were 
generously given to 
Centenary through the 
years by Dr. David 
Kimball. Other 
numerous local art 
patrons have 
contributed art works to 
the college that will be 
included in the exhibit. 
Willard Cooper, 
Chairman of the Art 
Department, is curator 

of the collection and has 
had to restore many of 
the pieces in the 
collection which hang in 
Magale Library and 
administra ti ve offices 
in Hamilton Hall. 

This comprehensive 
exhibit, catholic in 
scope, spans the 
centuries from Old 
Masters' prints to 
experimental works and 
includes all types of 
media from oil and 
watercolor to various 
printing techniques . 
The collection features 
works by such well 
known artists as Mary 
Cassatt, Pierre August 
Renoir, Eugene 
Delacroix, William 
Glackens, Ernest 
Lawson, Maurice 
Utrillo, Henri de 
Toulouse-Lautrec, Marc 
Chagall, Reginald 
Marsh, Alexander 
Calder, Piranesi, 

Kiyoshi Saito, Don 
Brown, George Grosz, 
Alfred Maurer, Othon 
Friesz, Jose Clemente 
Orozco, Alvin Sella, 
Evan Lindquist, John 

Several different 
movements represented 
in the collection are: 
German Expressionists 
Paula Modersohn- 
Becker and George 
Grosz; Fauvism of 
Othon Friesz; School of 
Paris represented by 
Marie Laurencin, 
Gaston Sebire, Rene 
Genis and Bernar 
Buffet; Mexican 
Expressionists Jose 
Clemente Orozco; 
Mexican Muralist Diego 
Rivera; Ash Can School 
or 'The Eight" 
including Ernest 
Lawson and William 
Glackens; Surrealism 
of Salvador Dali. 

Interesting aspects of 
the lives of some of the 

other artists add spice 
to the collection. Dudley 
Murphy was a member 
of the faculty in 
architecture at Harvard 
for 35 years and 
Herman Webster 
earned a doctorate from 
Yale. Murphy is 
represented in the 
collection by a striking 
oil painting in reds of an 
oriental vase while 
Webster has an etching 
entitled "Ponte Santa 
Trinita." Francoise 
Gilot lived with Picasso 
in the early years of her 
career and wrote a book 
about her life with the 
famous artist. 

This exhibit is on view 
in the main gallery of 
the Meadows Museum 
August 27-October 10 
and is open free of 
charge to the public. 
Centenary students can 
obtain cultural 
perspective credit for 
touring the exhibit.

Gents without "center" of attention 

After climbing within 
one victory of the NCAA 
post-season tournament 
last spring, the 
Centenary College 
Gentlemen will be 
gunning from their 
fourth consecutive 
winning season, second 
Trans America Athletic 
Conference title and 
first appearance in an 
NCAA tournament. 

The Gentlemen put 
together a very talented 
basketball team last 
year, but losing 
Cherokee Rhone, a fifth- 
round draft pick, at 
center and Steve 
Burkhalter, Mr. 
Consistency, at 
forward, two key 
positions must be 
replaced in order for the 
Gents to earn a post- 
season tournament bid. 

Fifth-year head coach 
Tommy Canterbury has 
three starters returnm*-, 
from last year's 17-12 
Gents, five returning 
lettermen and six small 
talented newcomers. 
Starters Willie Jackson 
(6-6, 200 pound 
forward), Napoleon 
Byrdsong (5-11, 150 

pound point guard) and 
Reggie Hurd (6-1, 160- 
pound second guard) 
are back to give the 
Gents one of the best 
outside games in the 

Jackson might be the 
best all-around player 
in college basketball 
today. He averaged 23.9 
(693 points in 29 games) 
points and 9.8 (283 
rebounds) rebounds per 
game last season and 
was voted the "Most 
Valuable Player" in the 
TAAC and the state of 
Louisiana. In addition, 
Jackson finished as the 
sixth leading scorer in 
the nation last year and 
will return as the 
number three scorer 
this year. 

Byrdsong is a proven 
team leader; and when 
the 5-11 sparkplug is 
firing, so are the Gents. 
Hie point guard from 
Longview, Tex., led the 
TAAC in assists and set 
a new school record 
with assists midway 
into his junior year. He 
currently has 
accumulated 452 career 

assists and last year

finished 24th in the 
nation with a 5.96 per 
game average. 

Hurd came to 
Centenary and really 
boosted the offense. 
After sitting on the 
bench most of the first 
half of the season, 
Canterbury started 
Hurd midway into the 
second half, and the 
freshman from Dallas 
provided the fire-power 
the Gents needed 
outside. He ended the 
season averaging 9.0 
points in 28 games. 

However, the big 
question is who will 
replace Rhone (6-9, 225 
pounds) at center. For 
the past three seasons 
Coach Canterbury ' s 
center-oriented offense 
focused on Rhone. Now, 
without a prevailing 
man in the middle, the 
Gents will be suspect at 
center early in the 

The Gents have 
always been a fast 
break team (last year 
they finished 29th 
nationally with a 76.2 
per game average), but 
with a starting lineup 
that averages only 6-2, 
speed and quickness 
will be a new dimension 
in the Centenary attack. 

Consequently, the 
Gents are going to have 
to ru n as much as they 

can to overcome their 
shortcomings. They will 
start Eric Bonner (6-7) 
at center, while junior 
college transfer Vance 
Hughes (6-5) will take 
the early nod at the 
small forward slot. 

Both players are 
small but very quick. 
Bonner played in all 29 
games last year and 
started in seven. He 
averaged 4.6 points and 
4.1 rebounds per game. 
Hughes was a standout 
at Henderson County 
Junior College and 
averaged 11 points and 

Behind Bonner is two- 
year returning 
letterman Greg Smith 
(6-8, 210). Smith played 
in 11 games last year 
and will provide the 
necessary muscle 
inside. Smith averaged 
1.4 points and 1.4 
rebounds per game. Joe 
Beaubouef (6-10, 210) is 
a fine-looking freshman 
who shows a lot of 
potential, but who needs 
grooming. During his 
senior year at Central 
High he averaged 22.3 
points and 11.2 rebounds 
per game. 

Although Hughes has 
been tabbed as the 
starting small forward, 
several players could 
bid for playing time. In 
particular, Albert 

Willie Jackson 

Thomas, a 6-3 freshman 
from Macon, Ga., who 
averaged 19 points and 
14 rebounds at 
Southwest Central High, 
could step in and play 

Eric Woodard, a 6-5 
freshman and 
teammate of Thomas in 
high school, will also 
provide good depth at 
the forward position. 
Woodard averaged 12 
points and 10 rebounds 
per game. Lorin George 
(6-5, 190) has been 
moved from the second 
guard position to 
forward this year. This 
move will provide 
Canterbury with more 
height along with some 
excellent long-range 
shooting skill. George 
averaged 3.1 points per 
contest last year. 

Napolean Byrdsong 

Behind Byrdsong are 
two newcomers, Russell 
Taylor (6-0, 160) and 
Tom Schmidt (6-3, 175), 
who will give 
Canterbury plenty of 
depth at the point guard 
position. Both players 
are being groomed to 
take over when 
Byrdsong graduates. 
Taylor averaged 10 
points and seven assists 
per game at Cook 
County, J.C., while 
Schmidt averaged 13.6 
points and 4.3 rebounds 
per contest at Belleville 

Two returning 
lettermen, Rodney 
Bailey (6-6, 185) and 
Chris Weaver (6-3, 175), 
will give Centenary 
added depth at the 
second guard slot. 
Bailey, a junior from 

Bossier City, La., ca| 
off the bench on sevi 
occasions last year 
sparked the team 
victory. He averaged 
points and 1.4 reborn 
per game. Weaver, 
second year plaj 
from Ashland, 
played in only f< 
games last year, 
shot 66 percent from 
field and should see a 
more action this ye 
Coach Canterbi 
feels that if he can 
average center pi 
from his three cente 
Bonner, Smith 
Beaubouef (14 poi 
and 10 rebounds 
game) throughout 
year and a lot of 
from his bench, 
this year's team ca

CSCC names new director 

A young 32-year-old 
Catholic who speaks 
German and a little 
Swahili has been named 
associate director of the 
Centenary School of 
Church Careers. 

Thomas D. DeVries 
was named to the 
position by Centenary 
College President 
Donald A. '-'ebb. 

DeVries, a native of 
Grand Rapids, Mich., is 
a summa cum laude 
graduate of Central 
College in Pella, Iowa, 

and New Brunswick 
Theological Seminary, 
where he was awarded 
the Augustus G. 
Sandham Award for the 
highest academic 
standing in the class, an 
honor he earned for 
three consecutive 
years. In 1975, he did 
graduate work in 
England and northern 

DeVries has worked 
in substance abuse and 
medical centers, the 
Church, Faith-at-Work 
Inc., Felician College, 
and last summer for the 

Maryland Missioners in 
Tanzania, East Africa. 
He comes to Centenary 
from Orange, New 

Jersey, where he was 
member of the Team 
Ministry for Our Lady 
of the Valley Parish. 

An associate director 
of CSCC, DeVries will 
supervise the students 
field education program 
and coordinate the 
small group component 
where students begin to 
integrate all that they 
are learning. 

Student government 
met Tuesday, 
September 14 for the 
first time this semester. 
Greg Blackman, 
president of SGA called 
the meeting to order at 
11 a.m. He started by 
stating that people with 
budgets should avoid 
spending much money at 
this time because most 
budgets will be cut. 
SGA's finances will be 
less because of a drop in 
full time enrollment.

Wanted: Althea 

Althea, the unofficial 
campus dog, who has 
been the focus of t-shirts 
and newspaper features, 
has found trouble with the 
law. Centenary's own 
mutt is violating the local 
law which states that if a 
dog is not restrained by a 
leash or fence, even on 
private property, the dog 
would be taken to the 
pound. The Conglomerate 
learned of this when on 
Wednesday, September 
8th, Centenary student 
Janie Leach noticed 
Althea running down 
Rutherford Street. 
Curious as to why Althea 
was running, Leach called 
for her. The only response 
from Althea was a short 
pause followed by a wag 
of her tail. Realizing what 
was happening, Leach 
began to stall the dog 
catcher who was pursuing 
Althea. When asked why 
he was chasing Althea, he 
said that she was violating 
the leash law and that 
"we have to do what the 
city tells us to do." During 

this discussion, Althea 
was able to escape. When 
the dog catcher saw that 
Althea had run away, he 
stated, 'Til get her yet!" 

According to David 
Bentley, bookstore 
manager, Althea was 
being kept inside a fence 
for a few days by a 
neighborhood family. This 
is almost impossible 
because the dog can jump 
over five foot fences. 
Bentley stated that people 
had been calling the 
Bookstore from all over 
Shreveport about Althea. 
"I don't know what's 
going to happen," said 

for adoption. When asked 
if the dogs were put to 
sleep if not adopted, the 
reply was "after so long. . 
well we pick up 30 a day. ' ' 
An interview with Dick 
Anders, Dean of Students, 
revealed that he has been 
assured twice that Althea 
would probably not be 
picked up on campus, and 
that if she is caught off- 
campus, they would call

The school has received 
only $43,000 in 
government aid so far 
this year. while 
one of the federal 
guidelines of the work- 
study program is that 
one can work a 
maximum of 20 hours 
per week, there is no 
limit to how many hours 
a college work 
participant can put it. In 
the college work 
system, 100 percent of 
the student's salary 
comes for college 
dollars, so while the 
jobs on campus are 
available to both 
programs, the majority 
of students hired are on 
work-study, since it 
"can stretch the

Carol Poole is a 
student in the work-

students receive for fees 
and tuition. Poole cites 
some of the bonuses of 
an on-campus job as not 
having to waste gas to 
get there, and the 
sensitivity of the job 
supervisors to school 
needs (like tests). Since 
she works closely with 
computers, Poole learns 
exactly how things are 
done, and she believes 
that this knowledge will 
be a definite boost for 
her when the she enters 
the job market after 
leaving Centenary. 

Craig Coleman, 
another work-study 
participant, is working 
for the second year in 
the school's bookstore 
and post office. 
Coleman enjoys the 
informality of both, but 
emphasizes that "we 
must do our jobs, work 
with each other, and get 
along.' ' Coleman says 
that two good things 
about the job are 
meeting people and 
helping to solve their 
problems (like lost mail 
or what books they 
need). Like Carol Poole, 
Coleman appreciates 
the fact that his job 
supervisors "view 
Centenary as your 
business,' , unlike the 
boss of an off-campus 
job, who would put his 
own business first. 

Carlos Munoz has 
held many on-campus 
jobs on the college work 
program, including 
positions in the Hurley 
music library, the 
English Language 
Center, and as a Dorm 1 
daddy. Currently, he is I 
employed by| 

Centenary's own 
Magale Library, where 
he has worked for two 
and a half years. 
Working in the library 
has given Munoz an 
extensive familiarity 
with the library's 
resources, or in his 
words, has provided 
him "a head start as far 
as finding where books 
are located, or how to 
find them." He 
recommends that 
students try and find 
jobs related to their 
major for the practical 
experience it could 

developing his patience 
and keeping material he 
studied some time ago 
still fresh as he reviews 
how to set up and apply 
equations with his 
students. One of the 
most rewarding aspects 
of work is watching as 
those he helps pull their 
grades way up. As far 
as how his tutoring will 
affect his future, Irvine 
asserts that the 
experience "will help in 
anything involving the 
presentation of facts."

Finally, even on a 
campus the size of 
Centenary's there is 
always room for private 
enterprise, as Alan 
Irvine can attest. Two 
years ago as a 
sophomore, Alan Irvine 
realized that there was 
a demand for tutors in 
chemistry and 
advanced algebra. 
Unlike the work-study 
or college work 
programs, Irvine can 
charge more than 
minimum wage, and 
can work whenever and 
wherever is convenient 
for him. He credits 
tutoring with 

So whether you're 
interested in a college- 
oriented job like Dorm 
Daddying, writing 
parking tickets, grading 
papers, or working at 
Magale, Hurley or with 
the maintenance 
department, or you're 
ingenious enough to 
come up with a money- 
making scheme of your 
own, there's plenty of 
opportunity on the 
Centenary campus!

Alcohol on campus 
whose decision is it? 


You are invited to 
express your views 
concerning Centenary 
policies, or local, 
national or 
international issues. 

For years the 
students of Centenary 
have refused to confront 
the administration with 
the issue of allowing 
alcoholic beverages on 
the college campus. In 
doing so, the students 
are giving their tacit 
approval for the 
administration to 
continue this policy. 

The basis for this 
policy is that Centenary 
is a private institution 
funded primarily by the 
Methodist Church. In 
the first Rotary dorm 
meeting, this fall, Jeff 
Teter, the resident 
director, specifically 
stated that alcohol is not 
allowed on campus 
simply because the 
Methodist ministers do 


not want it allowed on 
campus. What gives the 
Methodist Church the 
right to set policy 
governing the students 
private lives? The days 
of the in loco parentis 
(in the place of parents) 
method of setting policy 
are over. 

The fact remains that 
the Methodist ministers 
refuse to abide by their 
own policy. At the 
Methodist Ministers 
Conference this past 
summer alcoholic 
beverage containers 
littered the dorms 
where they stayed. The 
maintenance crew 
actually looks forward 
to working inside the 
dorms after these 
conferences because 
many times the 
ministers leave their 
unfinished bottles 
behind. These are the 
same people who 
hypocritically deny

You wonder what part 
the administration 
plays in this. While 
continually harassing 
students ove r the issue, 
they knowingly allow 
the fraternities to keep 
kegs of beer in the 
cafeteria cooler. Not 
only are the Methodist 
ministers hypocritical 
in setting this policy, the 
administration is just as 
hypocritical in 
enforcing it. 

How long will this 
charade continue? We 
believe that the 
majority of students at 
this college who drink 
do so responsibly. In 
fact, they have been 
doing so as long as we 
have been here. If 
enough students

willingness to have this

This boundary line, 
along with other 
outcroppings of this

centerpiece of their 
religion, possibly being 
a representation of their 
deity. Not only do they 
present offerings of 
metal vehicles to it, but 
they go to great lengths 
to prevent any 
defacement of it. Just 
recently they went to 
great expense to cover 
up some hideous white 
and yellow markings 
that some rival sect had 
painted all over it. This 
deity must be some kind 
of earth god. Not only do 
they have small islands 
of earth in the center of 
its representation 
(offerings or temples 
perhaps), but they also 
take great pains to keep 
fine earth all around it, 
keeping this loose

raked and smoothed

leave footprints all

Privacy and 
meditation hold an 
important place in their 
lives. For example, in 
the temple of their 
science god Mickle they 
have a small chamber 
that carries them about 
the building away from 
the bustle of the crowds. 
This chamber travesl 
quite slowly, often 
stopping at random 
intervals to accord 
those within plenty of 
time to worship.

Sigma Gamma Epsilon 
hears speaker 

Sigma Gamma 
Ep6ilon, the honorary 
geology fraternity at 
Centenary, met at lunch 
Monday in the 
Centenary Room. The 
club will meet every 
second Monday of each 
month. The club's 
objectives are to 
promote scholarship, 
scientific advancement, 
and friendship among 
colleges and 
universities of science. 
The club will have its 
iniations in October. 

The highlight of 
Monday's meeting was 
the lecture given by 
Robert Frey, professor 
of geology here at 
Centenary. Mr. Frey 
will receive his 
doctorate in geology 
next summer and has 

already published two 
new species of fossils. 
He finds geology a 
fulfilling career 
because it is fun, 
interesting, and much of 
his own personal 
interpretation is 
involved. He studies 
Paleo-ecology which 
requires knowledge 
from all divisions of 
geology. His 
dissertation is a study of 
a shale unit in 
southwestern Ohio and 
eastern Indiana. He 
showed samples of the 
different limestones and 
claystones of the shale 
unit he studied. The 
name of the shale unit is 
Treptoceras Dus^ri.

Raitt headlines 

John Raitt, one of a Raitt is a most 

handful of performers 
ever to play to sold-out 
audiences in 
Shreveport, has agreed 
to return here in an 
entirely new role for the 
Shreveport Symphony 
this season. 

The Broadway 
singing star who 
appeared in three 
touring stage musicals 
at the Civic Theatre in 
the 1970s has been 
signed as soloist for one 
of the Shreveport 
Symphony subscription 
seasons's "Pops" 
concerts. He is 
scheduled for the 
"Broadway to 
Shreveport" pair of 
"Pops" programs next 
March 12-13 under the 
baton of Margery 
Deutsch, the 
orchestra's associate 

When Raitt played to 
SRO audiences here in 
Lerner & Lowe's 
"Camelot" he joined an 
exalted company of 
artists who have filled 
the Civic Theatre — Van 
Cliburn, Beverly Sills, 
Ferrante and Teicher, 
and Shreveport's own 
Centenary College 

He also has starred 
here in "Carousel" the 
Rodgers and 
Hammerstein musical 
vhich catapulted the 
baritone to Broadway 
stardom, and a national 
production of 
Shenandoah," which 
played Shreveport 
.iiead of its State Fair 
of Texas engagement at 
Fair Park Music Hall in 

notable addition to the 
ranks of pop concert 
soloists which includes 
such stellar screen 
performers as Jane 
Powell, Anna Maria 
Alberghetti, and Gordon 
McRae. The baritone 
became the top male 
star of the musical 
stage in the late forties 
and early fifties via his 
brilliant portrayals in 
two of Broadway's 
biggest hits, "The 
Pajama Game" and 

He co-starred with 
Doris Day in the motion 
picture version of "The 
Pajama Game" and 
with Mary Martin in the 
TV special of Irving 
Berlin's "Annie Get 
Your Gun." Other 
major credits include 
u Zorba," "The Music 
Man," "Oklahoma! and 
"I Do! I Do!" 

The Shreveport 
Symphony's 1982-83 
season of 10 pairs of 
concerts will begin on 
Sept. 25-26 with violinist 
Oscar Shumsky as 
soloist and Paul Strauss

Selby, soprano 
Claudette Peterson, and

Band booked fro the 
orchestra's second 
"Pops" program on 
December 18-19. 

Starving student 

Native Shreveporters 
and those students 
returning to Centenary 
need no introduction to 
Strawn's, but students 
new to this area may not 
be familiar with what 
has become something 
of an institution here in 
Shreveport. Strawn's, 
located on King's 
Highway just across 
from campus, is open 
from 6:00 a.m. to 9 p.m. 
Monday through 
Saturday. The fact that 
this small restaurant is 
always crowded tells 
much about the 
popularity of Gus' 
sandwiches and daily 
Hot Plate Lunch ($2.60) 
among local 
businessmen and 
students. However, 

Strawn's most popular 
offering is undoubtedly 
the fresh strawberry 
pie. The pies — peach or 
strawberry (90 cents a 
slice) and chocolate, 
coconut, or lemon (80 
cents a slice) — are 
always good, although 
not all flavors are 
available every day. 

When we last visited 
Strawn's our bacon and 
cheese club sandwich 
($2.25) and French fries 
(75 cents) were very 
good, but one of my 
companions complained 
that his grilled cheese 
sandwich was just a 
little too greasy. The 
french fries are 
excellent, though — 
crisp julienee fries that 
are piping hot and 
A good time to 

consider Strawn's is for 
Saturday morning. 
There are quite a few 
students who like to 
sleep late then stroll 
over to Strawn's for 
their late morning 
breakfast. Breakfast 
prices range from 30 
cents for toast to $1.90 
for a full breakfast of 2 
eggs, toast and bacon, 
ham or sausage. Hash 
browns (75 cents) are 
also a favorite any time 
of day. 

The waitresses are 
accustomed to seeing 
Centenary students and 
even know many of 
them by name, so 
Strawn's is a favorite 
place for the college 
crowd in seach of — 

Japanese exhibit at Meadows 

In the past 100 years 
America and Japan 
have been busily learning 
from each other — the 
Japanese to appreciate 
machines and the 
Americans to appreciate 
beauty. As Americans 
have based their special 
culture on machines and 
the power that they give, 
the Japanese have 
developed their culture 
on appreciation oi 
nature and beauty. 

The Japanese artisans 
were superb craftsmen 
and masterfully trans- 
formed their everyday 
items into works of art. 
Their respect for the 
beauty found in nature is

Soccer team kicks into action 

The Centenary 
College Soccer team 
opens its 1982 season at 
2:00 p.m. this Saturday, 
in Jackson, Mississippi, 
against Millsaps 
College. The Gents 
scored at 6-1 exhibition 
victory over Hinds 
Junior College here last 
Saturday afternoon. 

Last year, the Gents 
were 3-12 overall and 
finished sixth in the 
Trans America Athletic 
Conference (TAAC). 
Even though they lost 12 
games, they lost most of 
them in the final 12 
minutes. The reason, 
according to head 
soccer Enos Russell, the 
Gents did not have 
anybody to kick the ball 
into the net. 

However, after their 
6-1 victory Saturday, 
Russell feels his Gents 
now have the necessary 
finishers to bring 
Centenary its first-ever 
winning season. 

Three newcomers, 
Jay Poss, Sam St. 
Phard and Jeff Foster 
scored five of 
Centenary's six goals in 
the exhibition game. 
Each played a key role 
in keeping the ball alive 
in their half, firing a 
school record 31 shots. 
In addition, the six goals 
was the most ever 
scored by a Centenary 

"I was very pleased 
with the way the old 
guys developed and the 

new guys complimented 
the older fellows," 
Russell said following 
the Gents win over 
Hinds. "We've done 
very little technical and 
tactical work thus far. 
We've only been out 
here since Monday." 

Fourteen new players 
along with six lettermen 
comprise the new 
soccer team. Of the 14

this as well. 

Undoubtedly, most 
everyone on campus 
has seen some major 
changes from last year. 
The terrible road behind 
Marjorie Lyons 

Playhouse is no more. 
We have three new 
parking lots and are in 
the process of 
completing the lighting 
and plantings for these 
new facilities. 

Somewhat less 
visable is our new 
greenhouse. On the 
south roof of Mickle 
Hall, we are working on 
the final stages of this 
structure. Everyone 
involved feels that this 
will be a real addition to 
our science propram. 

Major changes have 
occured near the Gold 
Dome, not the least of 
which is the completion 
of a new six court, 
tennis complex. This 
new complex is one of 
the best of its type in the 
state. We have excellent 
courts and new parking 
facilities nearby. It is 
truly something to be 
proud of, and I hope 
everyone in the 
Centenary family can 
be with us at 2:00 p.m. 
on October 1 when we 
cut the ribbon on the 
courts. The formal 
dedication will be in the

agree that Centenary 
has a great deal of

Ring leads new 
chamber singers 

By Suzie Knoop 
What organization on 
campus has twenty-four 
members, a lot of 
enthusiasm, great 
potential, a new 
director and sings? The 
answer to this riddle is 
the "new" Hurley 
Chamber singers. Why 
the "new" Chamber 
singers? It is because of 
the many new faces, 
including director, 
James Ring. 

This is not Mr. Ring's 
first teaching 
assignment. In fact, his 
past credentials are 
quite impressive. 
During the course of his 
career he has taught at 
elementary, secondary 
and college level 
schools. As far as his 
background, he 
graduated from the 
University of Oklahoma 
with a Bachelors and 
Masters Degree in 
Music Education. He is 
presently working on 
the dissertation for his 
Ph.D in Music 
Education, which he 
should complete this 

Mr. Ring has many 
[dans for his new group 
here at Centenary. He 
wants to form the 
singers into a "viable 
performing group" 
singing a broad range of 
music. He also wants 
the group to be a 
learning and teaching 
experience for its 
members. The group is 
not open to music 
majors only. All a 
student needs is a

sincere interest in 
music and a caDabilitv 
for sight reading. With 
only those 
characteristics, an 
audition with Mr. Ring 
is possible. 

A typical program 
performed by the 
Chamber singers would 
include songs from 
older stylistic periods as 
well as the Renaissance 
Art songs, and some 
lighter sacred music 
and some secular 
material. Mr. Rings 
also has plans to use 
both acappella and 

The group will 
perform for Centenary 
College in October, and 
again in the Spring 
semester. The group is 
trying to arrange local 
tours and trips 
throughout the Ark-La- 
Tex area. 

Officers who will 
serve as leaders for the 
singers are president, 
Vic E verhart ; 
secretary, Deborah 
Greer; sergeant-at- 
arms, Tom West; 
publicity co- 
chairpersons, Joey 
Crane, and Suzie Knoop. 
Members of the gropu 
are Vicki Adams, Kathy 
Allen, Jimmi Brown,

The facts about government grants 

by Edward 

Newspaper, radio, 
and television reports of 
substantial cuts in 
Federal financial aid to 
college students have 
triggered a barrage of 
phone calls to the U.S. 
Department of 
Education in 
Washington, D.C. 

Callers, both students 
and parents, are often 
confused by misleading 
or incomplete 
information. Many have 
expressed fear that the 
government has let 
them down; that college 
is no longer affordable. 

It is true that student 
financial assistance 
programs ha^e 
undergone considerable 
change in the past two 
years. There have been 
some reductions. Most 
of the changes, 
however, reflect an 
effort to return the aid 
programs to their 
original purpose, which 
was to help students 
cover the cost of a 
college education-not to 
carry the whole burden. 
A sucessful return to 
original intent will help 
ensure the survival of 
these aid programs for 
future students. 

Federal financial 
assistance is divided 
into three categories. 
"Grants" are awards of 
money that do not have 
to be paid back. 
"Loans" are borrowed 
money which a student 
must repay with 
interest. ' 'Work-study" 
provides the chance to 
work and earn money to 
offset college costs 
while attending classes. 

The Pell Grant 
program is one the best 
known of the federal 
student aid programs. 
Formerly called the- 
Basic Educational 
Opportunity Grant 
(BEOG), Pell is often 
the first source of aid in 
a package which may 
be composed of other 
Federal and non- 
Federal sources. In the 
1982-83 school year, 2.55 
million students share 
$2,279,040,000 in Pell 

The U.S. Department 
of Education uses a 
standard formula to 
determine who qualifies 
for Pell Grants. 

Students should contact 
the college financial aid 
administrator to apply 
on the free "Application 
for Federal Student 
Aid." This is the form 
used for all Federal 
student aid programs. 
The Department 
guarantees that each 
participating school will 
receive the money it 
needs to pay Pell Grants 
to eligible students. 

The Supplemental 
Opportunity Grant 
provides another 
mechanism for making 
awards to students. 
SEOG is different from 
the Pell Grant in that it 
is managed by the 
financial aid 
administrator of each 
participating college. 
Each school receives a 
set amount of money 
from the Department 
and when that money is 
gone, there are no more 
SEOG funds for the 

In 1982-83 the 
Depar tmen t of 
Education will provide 
440,000 students with 
$278,400,000 in 
Opportunity Grants. 
Students will get up to 
$2,000 a year under this 

Grant programs are 
designed to help the 
most needy students get 
a college education. The 
Pell Grant, in 
particular, is targeted 
to help those students 
whose families earn less 
than $12,000 per year. 
Grant aid is not meant 
to cover all college costs 
but is expected to be 
combined with 

contributions from the 
student's family and 
individual self-help, 
generally in the form of 
loans, private 
scholarships, and work 
Another type of 
student financial 
assistance is the College 
Work Study Program. 
Designed to provide on 
or off campus jobs for 
undergraduate and 
graduate students who 
need financial 
assistance, Work Study 
is usually managed by 
the college financial aid 
adrr inistrator Some 
950,000 students will 
receive $528 million 
under this program in 

A great deal of 
publicity has been 

generated lately on 
Federal student loans, 
particularly the 
National Direct Student 
Loan Program. 
Although all colleges do 
not participate in the 
NDSL program, 3,340 of 
them do. This program 
makes available low 
interest (5 percent) 
loans that students must 
begin repaying six 
months after 
completing school 
(either by graduating, 
leaving, or dropping 
below half-time status). 
Up to 10 years is allowed 
to repay the loan. 
Application is made to a 
school's financial aid 
administrator who 
manages the loan fund. 
The fund is a revolving 
account, designed to 
allow a school to 
continually make new 
loans as existing loans 
are repaid. About 
800,000 students will 
receive NDSLs in 1982- 
83; 10,000 more than in 

Recently, Secretary 
of Education T.H. Bell 
signed a regulation 
wh ich provides 
incentives for an 
institution to reduce the 
default rate of its NDSL 
program fund. A college 
which has a default rate 
of over 25 percent is 
asked to turn 
responsibility for 
collecting the debt over 
to the Federal 
government. If an 
institution is not 
prepared to do this, and 
the default rate remains 
25 percent or more, the 
Federal government 
will cut off NDSL 

The Guaranteed 
Student Loan Program, 
much in the news lately, 
makes available low 
interest loans to 
students, with the 
Federal government 
paying the interest 
while a student is in 
school. These loans are 
made by a lender (such 
as a bank, credit union, 
or savings and loan 
association) and 
insured by either the 
Federal government or 
a State Guarantee 
Agency. This, the 
largest student aid 
program, will make 
available over $9.5 
billion in loans during 
the 1982-83 school year. 

students can borrow up 
to $2,500 a year and 
graduate students can 

been asked to allow 
funds collected on 
delinquent loans to be 
recycled in the loan 
programs; under 
present law, such funds 
are returned to the 
Treasury. Returning 
money to the loan funds 
would make more 
money available to 
future college students. 

Student aid reforms 
proposed by the Reagan 
Administration re- 
establish the 
fundamental principal 
that a student and his or 
her family share the 
primary responsibility 
for meeting college 
costs. The Federal and 
State government have 
a role in bridging the 
gap between what a 
family can reasonably 
contribute and the cost 
of attending college. 
Only by maintaining its 
fiscal integrity can the 
Federal government 
continue to play its part 
in bridging this gap 
through student aid 


Post Doctoral Fellowships for minoritiei 

borrow up to $5,000 
under GSL. The total 
debt an undergraduate 
can carry is $12,500. For 
graduate or 
professional study this 
figure is $25,000. A 
student borrower whose 
family income is less 
than $30,000 
automatically qualifies 
for an interest- 
subsidized loan. 
Students whose family 
income exceeds $30,000 
may still be eligible for 
GSL interest benefits if 
the college's financial 
aid administrator 
determines that the 
student has 
demonstrated financial 

As the econony 
continues to recover, we 
can expect a continued 
lowering of interest 
rates, thus easing 
student repayment cost 
and reducing Federal 
expenditures. In 
addition, the Reagan 
Administration has 
embarked on a major 
initiative to collect 
delinquent and 
defaulted loans under 
the National Direct and 
Guaranteed Student 
Loan Programs. It is 
anticipated that $80 
million will be collected 
in 1983. Congress has

Centenary adopts a school 


ile Adopt-A-School is 
new in the United 
(it has been 
tented in Oakland, 
and Baton 
among other 
), 1982 marks its 
in Shreveport. The 
here is 
dinated and run by 
Shreveport Chamber 
ommerce through the 
^ ^ Jer for Educational 
lcllearch. Dr. Eddie 
er, Director of this 
ter, and Chairman of 
r for tlfenary's Sociology 
Medi($utaent, explains 
Seriewhen an organization

in dl anything from

supplies and equipment to 
people who are willing to 
volunteer their time and 

So where does 
Centenary fit in to all of 

The "adopting 
organization" is the 
College's Sociology 
Department (through 
other departments on 
campus may join the 
campaign in future), and 
the "adoptee" is Creswell 
Elementary School, 
which is about five 
minutes' walk from 

Dr. Dave Throgmorton, 
a professor of sociology at 
Centenary, is 
coordinating the program 
between the two schools 
— joining those who want 
help with those who need 
it. Throgmorton is 
enthused that his 
sociology majors will be 
so intimately involved 
because, as he says, 
"Nine out of ten sociology 
majors are only exposed 
to college students the 
same as them. Now, they 
will be exposed to other 
types, too." 

And what other types!

includes kindergarten 
through the sixth grade) 
are in age and size (the 
chairs and desks there 
seem unbelievably tiny — 
were we ever that 
small?). Miss Linda 
Henderson, the principal 
of the school, says that 
CresweU's 400-member 
student body is composed 
mostly of white, black, 
Hispanic and Vietnamese 
children. Miss Henderson 
adds that some of her 
students come to school 
speaking little or no 
English — a final 
difference to which we at 
Centenary are generally 

Both Throgmorton and 
Miss Henderson are quick 
to point out that the 
program is not restricted 
only to those majoring in 
sociology. So far, between 
20 and 25 Centenary 
students (most, but not all 
of whom are sociology 
majors) have signed up to 
volunteer on a weekly 
basis a minimum of two 
hours each at Creswell, 

giving the school a total of 
at least 40 hours per week. 
The program officially 
begins Monday, Sept. 20 of 
this year, and will 
continue through May of 

What our students will 
actually be doing at 
Creswell has yet to be 
finalized. Miss Henderson 
says that since public 
schools can generally 
cater only to the normal, 
there is always a need for 
one-on-one tutoring — 
both with students who 
need extra help, and with 
those who need an extra 
challenge. Throgmorton 
predicts that our volun- 
teers will work in 
departments all over the 
school — in the music, art, 
language, and math 
classes, for instance. 
Vetter anticipates a 
number of enrichment 
programs our students 
will be able to provide 
those at Creswell. 
Centenarians with special 
talents in voice, drama, 
musical instruments, and 

art, for example, can help 
expose those children to 
more than the basic 
education they receive in 
the classroom. 

If helping and mixing 
with children of different 
backgrounds for a couple 
of hours each week 
appeals to you, call Drs. 
Vetter or Throgmorton at 
5161 for more information. 
The many rewards of the 
program include a 
valuable learning 
experience for you as well 
as your student(s), and 
some educational 
experience. The fact that 
you had an interest in, and 
worked for your 
community may set you 
apart from other job 
applicants in the eyes of 
some future employer.

Monty Python fans 
arise! At long last 
Monty Python has 
returned, not in a full 
length feature film like 
"The Holy Grail" or 
"Life of Brian", but in 
the same format that 
made them famous — 
the short sketches. Be 
warned however — this 
movie isn't a mere 
collection of studio 
sketches like the TV 
show or Something 
Completely Different, 
but a Film or Monty 
Python's recent 
preformance at the 
Hollywood Bowl. And 
die humour suffers 
somewhat in that 

Monty Python live 

Many of the sketches 
ate the old tried and 
true favorites from the 
televis ion show . 
Perhaps because we've 
seen these sketches so 
many times, perhaps 
because we're used to 
seeing them with 
realistic sets instead of 
a bare stage they just 
don't seem right. A 
sense of "it was better 
the first time" seems to 
pervade them. And one 
must wonder at the 
choice of material. True 
classics such as 
"Spam" or "The Dirty 
Vicar" are absent. 
Fortunately, some of 
the new material does 
work well. The frequent 
playing around with and

even in the audience is 

spontaneous The 
previously filmed 
sequences rise to the 
level we expect. And the 
last few sketches 
remind us what we 
hoped to see in this 

The film move- far 
too slowly. None oi 
Monty Python s frantic, 
mad-cap pace shows up 
here. The sketches flow 
slowly into one another 
rather than abruptly 
shifting. The cast is 
entirely too much at 
ease on stage, and in 
their leisurely pace they 
lose their cutting edge. 

However, the visual 
composition of the film 
is quite striking. The 
bright costumes and 
props stand out boldly 
against the deep black 
backdrop. Judicious use 
of the giant screen on 
stage helps set the mood 
and scene. The camera 
work, while not 
outstanding, flows 

All the elements of 
classic Monty Python 
present themselves 
before us, but somehow 
they just don't click 
together. If you're a 
Monty Python fan 
looking for a 
reminescent look, go 
see this with a bunch of 
friends when you're all 
in a somewhat silly 
mood to start with and 
you'll enjoy it. Just 
don't expect anything 
new or different.

Homecoming: Who is responsible? 


By Alyce Boudreaux 
SGA Senator 

Chris Webb, director of 
the Centenary alumni 
office is a rather 
innovative man. Recently, 
he devised a program 
which would allow for 
more of Centenary's 
alumni visit their home 
college. This brain child is 
known as alumni week- 
end. Due to the success of 
alumni week-end, the 
alumni office feels that 
Homecoming is no longer 
necessary at Centenary 
College. According to Mr. 
Webb, it is a national 
trend that Homecomings 
are no longer as popular 
as they once were. He 
reasons that since 
Homecoming is ideally 
for the alumni yet 
realistically for the 
current students, the SGA 
should assume the 
responsibility of Home- 
However, it is also 

important to realize the 
predicament in which the 
SGA finds itself. Although 
student enrollment has 
increased, the full time 
students attending 
Centenary has decreased. 
Thus, the SGA is in a 
tighter bind financially 
than it has been 
previously. It is simply 
not as easy as it sounds to 
just let the SGA handle 
Homecoming. We must 
also realize that this 
money is not the SGA's 
money. That is, it does not 
belong to the Senators. It 
belongs to the students. 
Each student contributes 
$60 for such media and 
events as the Centenary 
Conglomerate, parties at 
P.K.'s, KSCL radio 
station, movies, the 
Yoncopin yearbook, 
Banana Split Bashes, 
newly remodeled SUB, a 
VCR for the coffeehouse, 
and the Fall Ball. SGA 
money also goes to 
invting speakers to 

Centenary Campus. Such 
speakers have been Allen 
FunJ of Candid Camera 
and the internationally 
famous Leonard Nimoy. 

Tte ultimate decision 
rests in the hands of the 
students. Should the 
responsibility of 
Homecoming be assumed 
by the students or, as it 
has been in the past, by 
the alumni office? 
Consequences are 
encompassed with either 
decision. If the alumni 
assumes the 
responsibility, we run the 

risk of having a totally 
alumni oriented 
Homeconing as it has 
been in the past. If the 
SGA assumes the 
responsibility, in order to 
provide finding, it would 
be necessary to do away 
with existing SGA 
programs previously 
listed. So as it stands the 
SGA has no funds for 
Homecoming and the 
alumni office lacks the 
student input necessary 
for a good Homecoming. 
Cannot sane compromise 
be reached? 

The SGA made clear in 
last Tuesday's meeting 
(Sept. 14, 1982) that it 
would provide the student 

input necessary for a good 
Homecoming and would 

also provide the 
organizational resources 
necessary for 

Homecoming. Thus, it is 
meeting its half of the 
compromise. The 
question of whether the 
alumni office lives up to 
its half of the compromise 
remains to be seen.

How to care for the life in your room 

Thursday, September 23, 1982 — THE CENTENARY CONGLOMERATE— Page 5 


By Dr. Ed Leuck 
professor of Biology 

So you want live plants 
n your dorm room? 
^ith a little research 
fito specific plants' light 
requirements, and 
careful attention to 
catering, it is possible. 
In the long run, this 
ligence is easier, more 
tisfying, and cheaper 
continually buying 

.„ i Your dorm room 
ighting is the over- 
iding determinant of 
vhat you can grow. If 
ou don't have enough 
ght, that's it. While a 
lant may initially look 
ood in a dark, bare 
iorner, it won't survive. 
P >lants need light to 
nake their own food; 
" low much light depends 
j^ipon the kind of plant 
~ rou have. Find out 
^ »fore you buy . 


J£ Artificial light is not 
early as strong as you 
C night think. A brightly 
rp lluminated room is only 
VlOOth as bright as a 
I jinny summer day. 

Even light through a 
south-facing window is 

only V 2 as bright, y 4 with 
a screen. 

Should you crowd 

plants against a sunny 
window? Only if you like 
them fried. Glass lets 
most wavelengths of 
light in but allows only a 
few out. The remainder 
create heat (this is how 
greenhouses work) that 
can cook plants. Plants 
requiring lots of light, 
then, are poor choices 
for dorm cultivation. 
Your best bets are plants 
with lots of dark-green 
foliage, as these are 
usually most efficient in 
utilizing low light 
intensities. A few worth 
mentioning are snake 
plant, trailing vines such 
as wandering Jew and 
philodendrons, weeping 
figs (even tree size) and 
African violets. The last 
are some of the few 
plants that will flower 
indoors on a regular 

Another factor to 
consider in moving 
plants to the dorm is 

their previous location. 
If they came from a 
sunny nursery or humid 

hothouse, the shock of 
your dorm room may be 
too much to overcome — 
the environmental shift 
is too drastic. If possible, 
your plants should come 
from conditions similar 
to those of your dorm 

After light, water is 
the most critical factor 
in dorm plant survival. 
Too little leads to death 
and too much leads to 
death. Failure to 
monitor soil moisture 
will inevitably lead to too 
much or too little water. 
Do not try to water 
plants on a regular 
schedule. An actively 
growing plant uses more 
water than a dormant 
one; a plant in summer 
uses more than a plant in 
winter; a plant in direct 
sun uses more than one 
in shade; a plant in a 
warm room uses more 
than one in a cool room ; 
a plant in a clay pot uses 
more than one in a 
plastic one, and a plant 
in a dry room uses more

Most indoor plants 
should be watered when 
the soil surface is 
beginning to dry out. 
Wait too long and it will 
wilt and die; water too 
soon and it will wilt and 
die. The latter result 
may surprise you. A 
plant's roots need 

oxygen for respiration as 
you do. And, like you, 
they can not get enough 
under water. An 
unglazed clay pot will 
minimize this possibility, 
as its porous nature 
allows air to the rooms 
from all sides. A plastic 
pot will increase the 
possibility of suffocation.

drink. Most additives are . 
detrimental to your 
plants. Allowing water to 
stand in an open container 
overnight will allow some 
things to leave directly as 
gases, making the water 
safer for your plants. 
When you water any 
plant, saturate the soil 
sufficiently for water to 
emerge from the bottom. 
This ensures uniform soil 
moisture (which encou- 
rages root growth 
throughout the pot), and 
serves to flush out 
unneeded solutes in the 
soil that might otherwise 
damage the plant. Plastic 
saucers underneath will 
prevent water damage to 
furniture and chemistry

much can cause your

by J. Alan Irvine 
September seems a 
month suspended in 
time, locked and lost in 
the void between 
summer and fall. A time 
of dying dreams, of 
unfulfilled promises, of 
vague whisperings of 
things to come. 

Summer is done with, 
its hold on the land 
weakening, but like a 
childless emperor it 
clings ever tighter to its 
domain as it slips away. 
The sun burns bright, 
temperatures soar as 
high as ever, but the fire 
lacks conviction. No 
longer does the heat 
dominate all existence, 
no longer the single foe 
to be grappled with, 
fought with. Somehow 
it's become but a minor 
inconvenience. The 
roaring giant has fallen 
to a petty annoyance 
that we just wish would 
leave. Cool, life-giving 
breezes and a tang in 
the air flank the heat on 
both ends of the day, 


giving the lie to 
summer's threat. Even 
so, autumn has yet to 
make itself felt. 
Promises in the evening 
wind, in a few turning 
leaves, and no more. 

Storms roll up over 
the horizon almost 
constantly. They 
threaten. The skies 
grow dark and 
menacing. Deep within 
thunderheards towering 
so high they blot out the 
sky flashes hint at 
terrible strokes of 
lightning swords. The 
keen ear detects the 
almost heard rumble of 
mythic thunder. A few 
drops of rain fall, at 
most a misting drizzle. 
And no more. By the 
next morning one can 
hardly tell what almost 

And as nature freely 
offers, yet never gives, 
so, too, do the events, 
the currents and flows 
of our own world seem 
to move towards some 
kind of truth or 
understanding, never to 
get there. Relations 
with friends and 
comrades will rparh 

new heights. We'll be 
closer now than ever 
before. This time we'll 
do it, break through the 
barriers, make the 
relationship something 
special. Something to 
keep forever. Later. For 
now, the confusion and 
chaos have not yet 
settled enough. Vast 
areas still remain 
untamed. We begin to 
feel comfortable with 
this new year, but can 
not yet shake the 
remembrance that it is 
utterly different from 
last year. Those 
differences continue to 
subtly distort and 
disrupt the smooth flow, 
the realization of the 
present into the 
promises ahead. Ahead, 
as the chaos of August 
settles into the order of 
October we can make 
our goals, promises 
growing ever clearer; 
but still beyond reach. 
Still just unmet 
promises. For now, we 
remain suspended in 
time caught between 
summer's August and 
autumn's October.

Oscar Shumsky has 
been hailed as "one of 
the world's greatest 
violinists' by none other 
than renowned Soviet 

violinist David 

Born of Russian 
parents in Philadelphia, 
he began to play the 
violin at the age of 
three. As a prodigy at 
the tender age of nine, 
Shumsky appeared as 
soloist with the 
Philadelphia Orchestra 
under legendary 
conductor Leopold 
Stokowski, playing the 
Mozart A Major Violin 

Following the 
performance Stokowski 
pronounced the young 
soloist "the most 
astounding gunius I 
have ever heard." 

Shumsky became the 
youngest pupil ever 
accepted by famed 
pedagogue Leopold 
Auer, and went on to 
complete his studies 
with Efrem Zimbalist at 
Curtis Institute, where 
he was later invited to 

The concert artist has 
maintained parallel 
careers as a violinist, 
conductor, and 
chamber music 
performer as well as 
teacher. He has held 
pedagogue posts at the 

Jullia rd School , 
Peabody Conservatory, 
and Yale University as 
well as at Curtis 
Institute of Music. 

The violinist often is 
guest artist in concerts 

of the Chamber Music 
Society of Lincoln 
Center in New York and 
a frequent guest at 
leading festivals in the 
United States. He has 
performed with most of

Opening this year's 
Red River Revel Arts 
Festival on October 2 
will be a kaleidoscope of 
colors and music 
presented in the first of 
37 performances of 
Laserium, seen for the 
first time in the Ark-La- 
Tex region. The 
performance, seen by 8 
million people in the 
U.S., Canada, Japan, 
Europe, and South 
America, coordinates 
music and variety of 
different colored 
images. Unlike any 
production for public 
display, each concert is 
slightly different 
because of the 
composition and size 
change of the images 
which is created by the 
laser performer or 

Laserium, produced 
by Laser Images, Inc., 
originally debuted in 
1973 at Griffith Park 
Observatory in Los 
Angeles. The creator, 
Ivan Dryer, views 
Laserium as a film 
performance. ' 'Film 
can, of course, be an 
art, it can be 
entertainment, and it 
can be both 
simultaneously. And 
that, I think, is what 
Laserium is doing when 
it is performed." 

The concert using 
argon and krypton 
lasers and a rear 
projection screen 
creates effects utilizing 
scores from jazz, rock 
and classical music. 
Previous engagements 
of Laserium include 
film, television, live 
concerts and special 
guest appearances. 
Laserium has been seen 
on or at the US Festival, 
Shirley MacLaine's 
television special, 
Diana Ross in Concert, 
Liza Minnelli, Doc 

Severinson, and Al Hirt. 
The laser generated 
imagery is used both in 
an abstract sense, for 
its intrinsic visual 
effects and semi- 
representationally to 
mimic, pun, or suggest 
certain kinds of 
experiences which are 
associated with the 
types of music 

The Laserium 
performances will be 
held in the Civic 
Theatre adjacent to the 
Revel site. Concerts 
begin Saturday, Oct. 2 
and run through Thurs., 
October 7. The weekday 
performances are at 
12:15, 3:30, 5:00, 6:30 
and 8:00 p.m. Special 
performances for more 
than 7000 area 4th grade 
students will be held at 
9:30 a.m. as part of the 
Red River Revel Arts 
Education Program. 
The show lasts 
approximately 55 
minutes and is 
admission free by ticket 
only. Tickets for the 

performances are 
available starting Sept. 
27th at Dillards and 
Palais Royale in the 
Shreve City Shopping 
Center and all branches 
of Bossier Bank. Tickets 
will also be available at

Gents take four in a row 

"Never say die" new motto of soccer team 

The Gents made an 
impressive showing this 
past weekend by sweep- 
ing two double-headers 
against East Texas Bap- 
tist and Le Tourneau 
Colleges. Both days the 
teams fielding abilities 
were only outshown by 
their batting abilities. 

On the field the Gents 
looked more like 
acrobats. First baseman 
Nick Nolfe did the splits 
in order to reach the bag 
before the runners; left- 
fielder Dean Cole caught 
balls over his shoulders; 
Richard Sims leeped into 
the air to snag fly balls; 
and shortstop Jim 
Qoldman made running 
throws to first. Coach 
Fsarrar gave the specta- 
tors a preview of his 
pitching staff, and they 
were impressive. Tom 
Fischer, Mark Mangum, 
Johnny Cryer, John 
Novak, Stacy Burt, 

Jerry Winfield, Ricky 
Hardaway, Geroge 
Fauber, Bryan 
Merchant, and Randy 
Ellege all had their 
chance to throw a few 
sinkers. Fischer, Win- 
field, Cryer and Fauber 
all chalked up wins, and 
Hardaway was credited 
with a save for their 

When the Gents got up 
to bat it became a con- 
test of who could get the 
most hits. In Friday's 
games against ETBC 
Jim Goldman emerged 
the slug-king going 4-6 on 
the day with two 
doubles. Catcher Wayne 
Rathbun came out ahead 
in the RBI Department, 
with a total of four for 
the day. Against Le 
Tourneau on Saturday, 
there too many hits for 
this reporter to keep 
track of. The score 
speaks for itself, 16-0 in 

the first game, 9-3 in the 

The Gents have now 
improved their record to 
5-1, and go up against Le 
Tourneau (there) this 
Friday, and Southern 
Arkansas (here).

The Centenary soccer 
team took themselves 
out of their game 
against Milsaps on 
September 12 — a 4-3 
victory for the Gents. 
The weather was 
muggy, the field 
muddy, and the players 
a bit tight after the long 
drive to Jackson that 
morning. The whole 
first half went by before 
the Gents could put 
their game together, 
even though they were 

down 1-0 at the half. 

By the second half, 
however, the players 
were ready to settle 
down for some serious 
soccer. The Gents 
errupted as Sam St. 
Phard crossed a ball 
onto which Jay Poss ran 
to head past the goal 
keeper. With the score 
tied, Milsaps came back 
to score again about five 
minutes later. By this 
point it was off to the 
races. Sam St. Forest 
scored on a tremendous 
shot from outside which 

went over the 
outstreached hands, 
and the Gents were on 
top for the first time 3-2. 
Milsaps came back 
again to even the game 
at 3 all. But that was all 

Centenary would allow. 
St. Phard has a goal 
called back, but two 
minutes later, after a 
free kick by Jay Poss 
went awry, Keith 
McPherson put the ball 
in the "onion bag" for 
the last time. When the 
final whistle blew, the 

gents were more 
happy. Coach 
Russell congratuli 
goalkeeper Bo Manj 
on his tremendous s< 
which dept Centenai

record is now 3-0 
over Hinds, 4-3

Assistant Editor 

Thursday, September 
Centenary President 
Dr - Donald Webb called 
a meeting for all 
st udents who are 
Ambers of the 
c°Uege' s Greek system. 
*" s purpose was to 
suggestions that 
*°uld aid the 
Maternities and 
^rorities and to "clear 
fte air" concerning 
devious incidents. 

°r. Webb began the 
rating by outlining the 
^ous problems that 
? Cc °mpanied the 
^finning of the fall 
fester. According to 
ne President, the 
^Ministration was 
j*Ser to begin another 
^ but with the 
!r£ v *l of the Greeks, 

ctl *os" broke out. 

KSCL: Can it survive? 

from the management 
of the station last year. 

Working with a 
limited amount of 
money last year, the 
SGA allocated funds for 
the 1981-82 school year 
from which the station's 
budget was set at 
$15,170. However, at its 
annual retreat held a 
couple of weeks ago, the 
SGA decreased the 
station's budget. When 
the money was given to 
the station last year, it 
was understood that 
such an amount would 
help bring lots of 
services to students, 
provide entertainment 
to the campus, and raise 
interest in the campus 
But it seemed that the 
station did not quite 
meet such goals for the 
service of the 


Greg Blackman, SGA 
president, states that 
such a cut is a fair one, 
and absolutely 
necessary since KSCL 
was asking for more 
than SGA could afford. 
He further states that he 
certainly appreciates 
what the preceding 
manager of the station, 
Jaxon Baker, did for the 
station. But he adds that 
the station's budget 
could not afford to stay 
the way it was 
proposed, and that he 
hopes that KSCL would 
be able to raise some 
money on its own. 

According to 
Blackman, the cut that 
occurred mainly affects 
the personnels salaries. 

and he insists that KSCL 
must improve its image 
towards the students as 
well as the community. 
Although he admits that 
he cannot promise now 
that the station will get 
more money in the 
future, he feels that if 
they ask for specific 
help, they will be able to 
get it. 

Blackman also feels 
that Guy Cassingham, 
the station's new 
manager, has already 
improved the station, 
and is willing to do a lot 
more to make KSCL's 
image even better. He 
adds that he is quite 
enthusiastic about some 
of the shows, like jazz 
and early 1950's styles, 
offered by the station. 
He thinks that KSCL 

will be able to survive 
despite the cut made by 
the Senate. He feels that 
KSCL has enough for 
now to get by without 
more money and that 
the SGA is willing to 
spend more if 
something is done to 
please students and the 

classical and more jazz 
to the station's 
program. Another 
renovation will be to 
lengthen the morning as 
well as the evening 
programming so that 
even more different 
types of music could be 

There is no doubt that 
the station's new 
ma nager, Guy 
Cassingham, will be 
doing a lot to improve 
KSCL's image. Already, 
he has many plans, 
which include dramas, 
and comedies such as 
'Amos and Andy," 
"The Shadow," and 
"Gangbusters." He also 
hopes to add more 

Although Cassingham 
did not give too many 
details about the cut (he 
"thought it would not be 
proper to air the 
financial side of the 
cut... it would not be 
polite to complain"), he 
did admit that one of the 
problems facing the 
station is that they are 
short on people. More 
students need to come in 
and be trained. 

Greek System Questioned 

Police, city hall, and 
neighbors, as well as 
members of the 
fraternities themselves 
became involved in a 
string of incidents 
which promoted the 
administration to 
believe the only solution 
was "to close things 
down on Woodlawn". 

Part of Dr.Webb's 
duty as President is "to 
keep the balance" and 
harmony at Centenary. 
The moral of the college 
as a whole, plus the 
student body and 
organizations must be 
right in order for the 
city of Shreveport to 
continue to support 
Centenary. And with the 
incidents that occured 
at the beginning of the 
fall semester, the entire 
system was "right out 
of balance". 

Several sorority and 
fraternity members 
spoke out against 
classifying individual 
acts with the group the 
person is a member of. 
The general concensus 
of the students 
assembled was that a 
group is not responsible 
for an individual and 
furthermore, single 
persons should be 
persecuted, thereby not 
tarnishing a fraternity 
or sorority's image. 
Cindy Hawkins, 
a member Chi-Omega 
defended her sorority as 
well as the Zeta Tau 
Alpha chapter by 
admitting to President 
Webb that she was 
"feeling negative" 
about the meeting. 
Since it appeared the 
women's organizations 
were being punished 
also. Dr. webb 
retaliated by restating 

that the sororities were 
not involved in the 
earlier incidents and 
explained that the 
sororities were at the 
meeting as the Inter- 
fraternity Council's 
request. There leaders 
wanted all Greeks to be 

Dr. Webb firmly 
stated that trouble 
within the Greek system 
will be handled 
immediately and the 
judicial board will try 
all cases. Before 
matters reach the 
attention of the 
however, he strongly 
hopes that the 
"fraternities and 
sororities will start 
dealing with their own 
problems; their own 
problem people" and if 
the fraternities can't, 
the administration will. 

Another major 
concern to Dr. Webb is 
the relationship which 
exists between 
Centenary neighbors 
and the houses on 
Woodlawn Avenue and 
Washington Street. He 
would like to see no 
negative involvement 
between the Greeks and 
third party persons. Dr. 
Webb pointed out that 
several people who live 
near the fraternity 
houses have complained 
about the fraternities to 
him, but did not wish to 
become "visable as 
complainers". Trey 
Harris, a member of 
Kappa sigma, voiced 
his belief that neighbors 
"liked" the fraternities 
and he was under the 
impression that a good 
"raport" existed in the 
neighborhood. Dr. Webb 
responded that the most 
recent complaint was 

that the music played at 
some of the parties is 
far too loud, and he 
himself believes the 
music should be kept 
within the limits of each 
house so as not to offend 
third party persons. 

Emphasizing that the 
Greeks are "all fine 
people" and "too 
valuable to quarrel 
with" Dr. Webb 
suggested ways in 
which the groups could 
strengthen the high 
quality standards set by 
the National 
Interfraternity and 
Panhellenic Councils. 
He is concerned with the 
neglect which 
periodically exists on 
Woodlawn Avenue and 
would like to see the 
house and grounds 
maintained. He also 
suggested that the 6 
social organizations 
raise money to donate 

Finally, he says that 
to be able to survive, 
KSCL will need to 
search for some other 
avenues by which they 
could raise more funds. 
"We are not just the 
campus radio station, 
we try to respond to the 

needs of the community 
as well as those of 
student groups." He 
said that he is open to 
suggestions and people 
should feel free to come 
during Office hours 
(usually from 1 p.m. to 4 
p.m. Monday through 
Friday). The people 
who participate are 
more important than 
the music, because 
Cassingham feels, most 
people tend to listen 
more to their friends 
than to the music. 

landmarks such as 
benches and fountains 
to beautify Centenary's 
campus. Dr. Webb is 
positive that the Greeks 
are capable of doing 
something " sy m bolic " 
instead of destructive to 
show others "It's not 
just kegs those guys are 
interested in". 

As a group the 
students voiced that the 
trouble which began the 
semester is behind. 
President Webb 
stressed his great 
admiration for the 
leaders of the sororities 
and f raternitites and his 
hopes that the 
Interfraternity Council 
will become as strong 
and as hardworking as 
the Panhellenic Council. 
"The past is past, and 
we (the administration 
and the Greeks) have a 
good future."

Pride of place 

By Dr. Darrell Loyless 
Vice President 
of The College 

Last week 
I mentioned that 
the College had a goal of 
beautifying the campus 
in the years ahead, to 
guide our efforts, we 
have retained a 
landscape architect who 
has set about drawing a 
master plan of the 
campus. The master 
plan will contain 
detailed drawings of 
plantings, sidewalks, 
lighting, fountains, and 
irrigation for the entire 
campus, north of Kings 
Highway. While we are 
improving the facilities 
near the Gold Dome, we 
have held the planned 
beautification of that 
area until we have the 
main part of the campus 
under control. 

Up to this point, we 
have completed several 
beautification projects 
on campus. The Balcom 
Landmark at the corner 
of Centenary Boulevard 
and Kings Highway is 
one of them. Funded 
with private gifts, this 
beautified area not only 
identifies the College to 
many people in the city, 
but it also shows, in one 
case, the quality we 
plan for the remaining 
campus grounds. 

Some other areas that 
have been completed 
are the flower beds near 
Atkins Gate and the 
entrance to Marjorie 
Lyons Playhouse. The 
circular bed near the 
Atkins Gate entrance 
was funded by The 
Foundation and will 
provide some winter 
color this year. 

Mrs. Lorraine LeSage 
has funded the plantings 
at the entrance to the 
Playhouse. In the not 
too distant future, the 

entrance will have some 
very special roses that I 
will discuss at a later 

Howver, all of these 
areas, save for the 
landmark, are 
contained in concrete 
areas and are not 
affected by the master 
plan. When it is 
completed, we will see 
improvements in the 
larger areas of the 
campus. The first big 
project of this type will 
be a new rose garden in 
the area between 
Hamilton Hall and the 
Hargrove Band Shell. 
This may cause some 
inconvenience for a 
while but it will be well 
worth it when the 
project is completed. 

There are several 
other beautification 
projects underway as 
we complete the master 
plan. They are referred 
to by those of us in the 
beautification program 
as the "3 M's." Next 
time, I would like to 
review our efforts in 
these areas.

By J. Alan Irvine 

Long time readers of 
this column will, 
hopefully, remember 
our dear friend Bonzo 
how some time ago 
entered politics in some 
obscure South 
American country. The 
following is a letter 
from Bonzo: 

Dear Centenary-type 

Greetings from my 
sunny southern climate. 
I hope life is going much 
ttetter for you than for 
me. Ah, the life of an 
Imperial President-for- 
Life (and some tiome

You see, recently our 
governing , body, what 
you would call a 
Parliament or Senate, 
the People's Circus met 
to set the country's 
budget for the year. 
Well, somehow jt we 
discovered that we'd 
taken in less taxes than 
our census data had 
indicated we should. 
Snce we're a well-bred, 
polite people, we 
decided not to 
investigate this 
shortfall for fear that 
we might get someone 
in trouble. Which left us 
with expenses billions of 
dollars beyond our 

Obviously something 
had to be cut. Naturally 
I made sure that the 
Presidential Trans-Am 
Fund remained 
untouched. After all, 
our country must 
maintain some level of 
international prestige. 

By the same token, all 
the officers of the Circus 
managed to maintain 
our modest salaries. 

Our worst problems 
involved the budget of 
our national theater of 
arts-The Players of the 
Winged Horse. This 
band of self-styled 
artists 4 somehow 
managed to coerce the 
Circus into supporting 
them some years ago, 
pleading that could find 
no other haven. Some 
Circus Performers 
bought this silly excuse, 
and we have had to 
shoulder the burden of 
their immense, 
backbreaking .budget 
ever since. Alt* -nigh in 
pros{)erous V s this 
proved no pr ,m, now 
that our limine has 
tumbled drastically this 
organization has 
become an incredibly 
excruciating weight. We 
were thus forced to 
slash the Winged Horses 
budget to the bone and

Betting it's a best seller 

By Bess Robinson 
Features Editor 

Did you know that

n .(that is, a collection of 
en different types or 

>h Ve I genres of literature) 
phased on their 
t0 ^'Handbodk. This idea 
evolved into what 
students of today's 
English 201 course 
FneU recognize as Mandala: 
3 Literature for Critical 
aal l Analysis. By 1979, the 

Handbook--"HCAL" as 
the editors 
affectionately call it- 
had passed the 100,000 
sales mark here and 
abroad, and was in its 
second edition. Now it 
was time to think of 
revising Mandate. But 
the revision never 
materialized. Sales had 
been good, but some 
readers were evidently 
mystified by the title. 
Mandala is the Sanscrit 
word for ''circle," and 
suggests the unifying 
integrity of great 
literature. It is also 
associated, like the 
Circle and the Square, 
with the number 
"Four"; it was 
therefore an especially 
appropriate title for an 
anthology with four 
editors dealing with the 
four major literary 
genres. Even so, Harper 
and Row wanted a less 
esoteric title. As a 
result, Dr. Labor had an 
idea for a completely 
new anthology, which 
he had even tentatively 
entitled Literature and 
Interpretive techniques- 
-or simply, "L.I.T." 

By this time (fall of 
1980', Drs. Guerin and 
Willingham had left 
Centenary's English 
department (to assume 
positions as LSU in 
Shreveport, and at the 
University of Kansas in 
Lawrence, Kansa. 
respectively), but were 

enthusiastic about 
working on the new 
book. Incoming 
professors Dr. Michael 
Hall and Dr. Barry Nass 
were also interested in 
the project, and brought 
the total number of 
editors to six. 

The collaborators 
decided that their new 
book should be "an 
anthology of fiction, 
poetry, and drama that 
emphasizes traditional 
interpretive techniques 
presented to the student 
through a highly 
integrated series of 
introductions to each 
genre, notes for each 
selection, and 
appendices featuring a 
glossary of critical 
terms and a guide to 
writing the literary 
essay." In December of 

1980, five of the six 
editors presented the 
idea to Phillip 
Leininger, the College 
Editor of Harper and 
Row Publishers, who 
gave them the "go- 
ahead"for the project. 

During the summer of 

1981, work on LIT. 
really got underway. 
Drs. Hall and Nass 
received a summer 
grant from the 
Centenary Alumni 
Association which 
permitted them to begin 
compiling the new 
anthology This 
involved collecting new 
pieces not included in 

Mandala, and writing 
introductions to the 
various genres, and 
headnotes for each 
author. Samples of this 
preliminary work, plus 
a prospectus (or plan 
for what the rest of the 
book would include) 
were sent to Harper and 
Row, who had them 
evaluated by about 50 
English professors at 
major colleges and 
universities around the 
country. The response 
was so positive that the 
publishers sent a 
substantial ad ance as 
well as a contract to the 

At present, the editors 
are working feverishly 
to finish the manuscript 
this fall. Though their 
work schedule has been 
complicated by Dr. 
Nass's departure for a 
teaching position at 
C.W. Post Center of 
Long Island University, 
the six are hoping that 
the book will be 
released by Chrismast 
of 1983. Dr. Labor 
comments that that 
"would be the nicest gift 
Santa Claus could bring 
to the six of us!" It 
would also be a nice gift 
for Centenary, because 
its reputation as a 
college where teaching 
and scholarship go hand 
in hand would be further

Based on the same 1933 
French murder case 
that inspired Jean 
Genet's 'The Maids", it 
centers on the lives of 
Lea and Christine, two 
servant sisters attached 
to the Danzard 
household. The 
Danzards, mother and 
daughter, are models of 
petit bourgeois idleness 
and severity, while the 
sisters are 
psychological, if not 
actual, prisoners in 
their stifling, 
hermetically enclosed 

Under the suffocating 
weight of the Danzards' 
authority, cramped in 
dark attic living- 
quarters, and cut off 
from any 
communication with 
their employers by the 
rigid lines of class 
distinction, Lea and 
Christine have only 
each other. Lea, who 
enters service at 16, 
comes to depend on 
Christine almost totaly. 
Christine is at once 
jealous of Lea's 
innocent, sensual

from the community. 
The professors would be 
free of ungodly 
workloads they now 
have and could also be 
more pleasant. 

We would have to 
keep the faculty and 
some of the students 
since we still want to 
look like a college. The 
faculty's most 
important job in the new 
Centenary would be 
marching in the

without all of the work it 
now has, perhaps that 
duty could be increased 
to two or three times per

who remain would have 
to be chosen very 
carefully., Of course we

don't want too many of

much. And we certainly 
don't want the radicals 
who complain about 
everything. We need 
students who are 
beautiful, who smile all 
the time, and who do 
whatever they are told 
to do. 

Imagine the benefits 
of such changes. The 
administration would 
never again have to 
worry about being 
embarrassed. In this 
day of Ronald Reagan's 
spiritual revival, we 
would be the pride of 
everywhere. We could 
run national

collect millions of

Dr. Webb: True Friend 


On Thursday, 
September 23, 
Centenary Greeks met 
with Dr. Webb in 
Kilpatrick Auditorium. 
Though many were 
unsure as to what the 
meeting would be about, 
curiosity won out, and 
there was standing 
room only by the time 
Dr. Webb began 

The president of the 
college seemed truly 
regretful that the 
meeting had to take 
place at all. What he 
had to speak about was 
the fact that some 
Greeks seem to have 
lost sight of their 
founding principals. 
There had been some 
trouble at the beginning 
of this semester — 
complaints from 
residents around 
Washington Street, 
trouble with the police, 
and general animosity 
be tween f ra terni ties . 
What Dr. Webb 
attempted to do was 
instill in Greeks the 
importance of doing 
what fraternities and 
sororities are supposed 
to do, and that is do our 
best to benefit the 
college and community, 
not alienate ourselves 
from them through 
irresponsible behavior. 

Though in some ways 
the meeting was meant 
to be a reprimand to the 
Greeks, it was also a 
necessary push from 
behind to get Greeks 
back on the right track. 
Few Greeks can deny 
that it was necessary. 

Dr. Webb was not 
saying that Greeks have 
been completely 
irresponsible or 
harmful. He was saying 

. . phil frank 

that people are more 
apt to remember bad 
things rather than good 
things, so the Centenary 
Greek system needs to 
work harder to stress 
our service-oriented 
founding principles. We 
cannot let the b_ cups 
laying around on 
Washington Street be a 
symbol of what Greeks 

Dr. Webb has proven 
himself a true friend of 
the Greeks by showing 
his concern for our 
reputation. We greatly 
appreciate his concern, 
and thank him for his 
encouragement. Go 
Greeks !

System, as I'm sure you 
are all aware, Dr. Webb 
called a meeting today 
(Thursday, September 
23) of all the Greek 
sororities and 
fraternities to discuss 
their "reputation on 
campus". As you may 
have guessed, that 
reputation is not a very 
good only. Dr. Webb 
began by stating how 
ready he was to receive 
the Greeks and that 
when they finally did 
arrive, it*%. was 

Destruction of property, 
police action and 
complaints from the 
city were many of the 
disappointments he 
voiced. He threatened 
everything from the 
judicial board to pulling 
charters, claiming that

the fraternitites and 
sororities added nothing 
to this college. 

In many ways, Dr. 
Webb does have a point. 
There have been many 
events that have 
certainly been less than 
honorable and those are 
the very events of which 
Dr. Webb is speaking. It 
is important to realize 
that the Greek system 
certainly does not look 
with pride on these 
events? In fact, we are 
quite ashamed of them 
and that is not what we 
feel Greek life is all 

Greek like has its own 
place on campus. And, 
at the risk of 
disagreeing with Dr. 
Webb, contributes a 
tremendous amount to 
this college. They 
contribute in their 
activities on campus. 
There are Greek 
members in every 
aspect of Centenary life 
from resident 
assisstants to Students 
Association members to 
the Presisdent's own 
advisory council. One 
glance at the Dean's 
List reveals the 
majority of these 
students are Greek and 
most of the students 
leaders on campus are 

The Greek system 
does contribute greatly 
to this campus but not in 
monetary ways as Dr. 
Webb would maintain. 
This was noted in 
several examples given 
by Dr. Webb on how the 
Greeks would 
contribute to the 
college. These included 
a cement chair which 
could be donated by 
each of the fraternities 
and the sororities to *he 
college as well as 
fountains which could 

phil frank 

also be donated. 

The question: wiie fo!l<

Ad Hoc proposes new curriculum 

w|ie following is taken from the Report of the 
wofresidents Ad Hoc Committee on Curriculum 

ds sm^ year a ^ 0 ' President WeDD announced the 
,rmation of an ad hoc committee for curriculum 
He chose this group rather than the

particular charge. The ad hoc committee would

Collei le 8 e ' not the ma j° rs - 

>AHCCS, as the committee came to be known, 

fails 5 composed of three faculty members from the 
at t j ucational Policy Committee, representing the 
1S ee divisions; an elected representative from 
dersh :hof tne divisions 5 and tne dean > associate dean, 
e schc 1 vice P resident of tne Coll ege. President Webb 
mo ; prompted to take this action because of the 
ly cha^ es of some °* tne most respected authorities on 
*oulrf JF" education * n the country. The main problem 
test gi a wnicn tnese groups identified in the curricula 
/e American colleges and universities was general 
lege cat i° n > a term tnat does not lend itself to easy 
e Gre( inition. Indeed, over the years, definitions have 
lg j u n not only diverse and comprehensive; they 
e also been contradictory. It is interesting, 
fever, that disagreements often centered more 
lheld w h a t a j ms 0 f general education were than 
at subjects should be included. 

'he educational philosophers who have studied 
s picture have not recommended general 
ucation for nostalgic or antiquarian reasons, 
ley have recommended it because the particular 
tivation of intellect, body, and spirit which it 
)ouses produces better vocational and 
Sessional human beings, better scientists and 
hnicians, better specialists of all kinds — better 
ause balanced and broad. 
>n the 1960's, Centenary, responding to what was 
to be sound curricular practice, reduced its core 
juirements from 60 hours to approximately 36. 

ti^ some ^"ty y**™ later ' man y feel that that 

uction was drastic in kind and degree and that to 
the aims that we deem important, the core 
ven ™ s to be broader, more intentional, more 
^P e tyoseful, and more prescriptive. To that end, 
ber ^ as drawn up the following curriculum.

Maximum core hours: 49 hours 

B. M. Degree and the Core Curriculum 
Students working toward the B.M. degree are 
required to complete at least 3 hours or one 3-hour 
course from each of the divisions of the core 

Three-two Programs and the Core Curriculum 
Three-two students are required to take 12 hours 
from each major division of the core, and all of the 
general college requirements with the exception of 
one Interim. 

In order to show the connection among all 
branches of learning and to prevent such a heavy 
course requirement in a great number of 
disciplines, PAHCCS is recommending a two- 
semester, ten-hour course in General Education, 
listed under the English Department. The course 
would include the regular six hours in English 
grammar and composition plus an additional four 
hours in interdisciplinary studies with readings, 
lecturers from other departments, demonstrations, 
performances, and films. Writing assignments 
would derive from these components. Students 
would write a research paper in each semester, and 
the course would be organized so that either 
semester could be taken first. 

No student should graduate from college without 
at least one literature course. To that end, English 
201, Introduction to Literature, or some other 
advanced English or American literature course, is 
required of all students. 

In keeping with the original intention of the 
January Interim program, to broaden and enrich 
students' academic and cultural experiences, six 
hours of Interim credit are required of all students. 

The Greek ideal of a sound mind in a sound body 
is the principal rationale for the restoration of 
physical education to the general curriculum. 
Core Curriculum for B.A. 
and B.S. Candidates 
Requirements in the major divisions of the 
curriculum are being strengthened across the 
board to correct the previous inadequacies in these 
areas. Every scholarly survey and analysis made in 
this country over the past decade has recommended 
upgrading college and university requirements in 
mathematics and the sciences. PAHCCS is 
proposing changes which broaden and deepen 
subject matter coverage. 

Similarly, in the social sciences, the aim has been 
to expose students formally to more disciplines than 
in the past. History not only informs human beings 
of their origins and chronological activity; it 
provides one indispensable perspective from which

to view all subject matter. Thus, the increase in the 
history requirement seems easily justifiable. 

As in the case of mathematics and the sciences, 
the humanities have been identified as curricular 
areas in serious need of additional requirements. 
The Carnegie Reptrt, the Rockefeller Commission 
on the Humanities, the Chronicle of Higher 
Education, findings of individuals universities 
ie.HI, Why We Made Tulane Tougher) and 
professional organizations (e.g., the Modern 
Language Association), and countless editorials 
and articles in the most respected magazines and 
newspapers in the country — all have noted with 
alarm the aedine of humanities studies and have 
concluded that they must be increased as 
requirements for college education. Agreeing with 
their many arguments and recognizing further the 
fundamental nature of the humanities in any liberal 
arts curriculum, PAHCCS recommends a year of 
foreign language study (or proficiency at the first- 
year level) and a broadening of the requirements in 
the fine arts, religion, and or philosophy analogous 
to that in the social sciences. 

B.M. Candidates aiid the Core 
The Hurley School of Music in effect a 
conservatory, and the Bachelor of Music degree is a 
professional degree as opposed to a liberal arts 
degree. It is altogether proper that students in this 
program be permitted to concentrate their course 
work in music. Within the constrictions of their 
professional education, however, they are required 
to take those general college courses required of all 
students plus some work in each of the divisions. 
Three-two Programs and the Core 
The requirements of the various three-two 
programs contain only slightly reduced general 
college and core requirements since students in 
these programs ultimately receive a B.A. degree 
from Centenary. 

While the proposed new core and general college 
requirements represent a substantial increase in 
the hours a student must take at Centenary, they do 
not vitiate a student's concentration in his major or 
overburden him with more hours than are 
customarily found in a typical undergraduate 
program. This is consistent with what the PAHCCS 
committee perceived as its charge: to review the 
curriculum at Centenary College in the light of 
present faculty opinion and the findings of 
distinguished educational panels and task forces 
and to make recommendations to President Webb 
that would strengthen the general education 
curriculum of the College. The President would 
then take the procedural action he deemed 


SGA's budget was 
decided on last weekend 
at the SGA retreat. The 
total 1982-83 budget is 
$74,201.14. It is divided 
in the manner. KSCL 
will receive $10,893,32, 
the Conglomerate 
receives $9,245.32, the 
Yoncopin budget was 
decided to be $20,000.00, 
and Pegasus will get 
$1,000. This total media 
cost comes to $41,338.64. 

The rest of the budget 
goes to stipends at 
$1,200.00, Open Ear - 
$1,000,000, Forums - 
$7,3 7 5.0 0, and 
Entertainment at 

expenses are office 
expenses - 500.00, 
calender expense - 
$2,400.00, Coffeehouse - 
$500.00, and the SUB - 

$1,000.00. There is 
$2,487.50 left on reserve 
for unknown expenses 
that may be incurred. 

They Yoncopin staff 
argued that they needed 
more money for the 
yearbook this year. 
Their salaries will be 
the same, but there will 
be increases in the cost 
of the book. The major 
reason for the increase 
is that color is going to 
be used this year. The 
business office asked 
that color be added 
since they use the 
yearbook as a 
recruiting too. 
Yearbook companies' 
prices have also 
increased. A 
recommendation will be 
made in the near future 
about the yearbook's

The following are platforms for two of the candidates 
running for SGA Sophomore Senator. 

My name is Bob 
Thomas and I'm from 
Little Rock, Arkansas. 
Since I transferred from 
the University of 
Arkansas, many of you 
do not know who I am. 
Therefore, I am taking 
advantage of this time 
and space to tell you a 
little about myself. 

In past years, I have 
held various positions in 
a wide range of 
organizations such as 
the captain and 
company commander of 
Jr. ROTC, social 
chairman of Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon 
fraternity, and the 
secretary of C.Y.O. My 
background has helped 
me to develop the 
leadership qualities 
needed for a senator 
here at Centenary 

As your sophomore 
senator, I will strive t<

Hello! My name is 
Lisa Illing, and I am one 
of the candidates 
running for sophomore 
senator. With four years 
of experience on 
Student Council in 
junior high and high 
school, I think that I am 
qualified for this office. 
Also I was an active 
member of the Library 
club, the Spanish club, 
the Business club, and 
thenewspaper and 
yearbook staff. I 
maintained a 3.5 
average during this 
time. During this past 
year at Centenary I 
have been on the 
committee with SCA, 
and active with SGA, 
and active with MSM 
and Chi Omega. I will do 
my best to represent 
and work for the 
sophomore class in the 
SGA. I would really 
appreciate your support 
and vote.

Don't make your letters 
come looking for you 

By Bess Robinson 
Ahhhh...mail! The 
letters, the 
packages.. .the bills. He 
remembered your 
birthday, she sent you 
cookies, you owe the 
phone company how 
much?r? Many of us 
live in anticipation of 
what the postman will 
bring us each day. Roy 
Seagroves, formerly an 
employee with the U.S. 
Postal Service, and 
Mail Room Manager at 
the Centenary Post 
Office for over a year, 
has some suggestions on 
how you can help get 
your mail delivered 
faster and more 
efficiently than ever. 

The first thing that 
everyone on campus — 
faculty, staff and 
students — must do in 
order to get their mail 
faster is use the new zip 
code, 71134-0188, (not 
just 71134, as was 
written in the 
September 23 issue of 
the Conglomerate). 
This zip code is for 
Centenary College only. 
If you use 71134-0188, all 
°f your mail (except for 
Packages) will be 
Picked up at 8 a.m., and 
you will receive it in the 
doming dorm delivery. 
The mailman will bring 
any letters without the 
zip code to the 
Centenary Post Office 
m the package delivery 
at 10 a.m., and these 
w iU be brought to the 
*>rms in the afternoon. 
A second way to speed 
P the system is to 
delude your 
department or dorm in 
toe address. Each year, 
ne w students arrive, 
an d older ones 
Sometimes move to 
Cerent dorms, or off 
^nipus completely. 
With about 400 students 
Uv *ng on campus, there 

is no way that the 
personnel in the school's 
post office can know 
which dorm or 
department a particular 
person is in. 

If for some reason 
(like winter or summer 
vacation, or 
graduation) you are 
changing your address, 
there is something you 
can do to make sure you 
still receive any mail 
that comes to you: fill 
out a change-of-address 
card! If students do not 
leave any forwarding 
address or instructions 
to hold their mail until 
they return, the 
Centenary Post Office 
doesn't know what to do 
with it. Only if you have 
filled out and signed a 
change-of-address card 
can the school's post 
office forward you your 
mail. Yes, the workers 
could look up your home 
address, but without 
this written permission, 
your mail cannot legally 
be forwarded to you. 
What happens to mail 
for people who haven't 
left forwarding 
instructions? Either it 
just piles up until the 
next semester, when it 
is delivered to the 
person if he returns, or 
it's marked "return to 
sender," or it's thrown 

Thrown away???? 
Don't panic! First class 
mail can be forwarded 
(if a change-of-address 
card has been filed) or 
returned to whoever 
sent it. Second class 
(newspapers and 
ma gaz ines , for 
example) and third 
class (packages and 
parcels) mail can also 
be forwarded (again, if 
proper notification has 
been given that the 
person will pay for the 
postage of forwarding) 

or returned if it has 

''return postage 

guaranteed" on it. Bulk 

mail (generally 

referred to as "junk 

mail") can never be 

forwarded, and rarely is 

marked "return 

postage guaranteed," 

so it's thrown away. 

What do you do if 

you're expecting a 

package? Wait for a 

package notification to 

arrive in your mailbox, 

then give it to whoever 

is working at the 

Centenary Post Office, 

and they will give you 

your package. You must 

present this package 

notice. Every package 

is dated the day it 

arrives, and a package 

notification card is sent 

out that same day. 

Every few days, 

workers in the post 

office check all the 

packages. If there are 

any that have been 

there for more than 

three or four days, 

another notification is 

sent out. If, in three to 

four weeks, the package 

still hasn't been 

claimed, the P.O. 

marks it "unclaimed," 

and returns it to the 


Finally, there is no 

"magic box" that Roy 

or any of the Centenary 

Post Office workers 

hide people's mail in. 

They don't want your 

mail, they don't hold it, 

they just want to get it 

to you as quickly as they 

can. Make it easier for 

them to do this by 

including your name, 

dorm, and the new zip 

code 71134-0188 on all 

your mail, by giving 

them instructions for 

mail you want held or 

forwarded, and by 

waiting for and then 

presenting the package 

notification they send 

Pips pushes enrollment up 

By Leigh Weeks 
The Centenary 
College Admissions 
office has released its 
total enrollment figures 
for the fall semester, 
and the count adds up to 
1491 ; an increase of 244 
student as compared to 
last year. 

The major factor 
contributing to this is 
the increased 
enrollment of graduate 
student in the 
Improvement Program 
(PIPS). Persons who 
are teaching are able to 
enroll in courses which 
will pave the way for 
advancement and wage 
increase. The majority 
of the enrollment fees 
for PIPS are funded by 
the State ^ which 
increases the incentive 

tor teachers to better 
themselves. The 
graduate total this year 
is 521 students, an 
increase of 257. 

attending Centenary 
has increased to 840. 
The admissions office is 
initiating a "big push" 
for full-time students, 
especially those who 
desire to live on 
campus. John Lambert, 
Director of Admissions, 
is confident that 
Centenary is competing 
with other colleges, and 
"what we have to offer" 
is an enormous pull for 
the college. 

The economic 
situation is to blame for 
the decrease in 
undergraduate part- 
time enrollemnt. It has 
decreased from 220 to 

131. Since tuition costs 
$127 per hour, students 
wishing to take a light 
load of courses can 
usually attend another 
college for a lesser fee. 

Foreign student 
enrollment is down, 
although the admissions 
office has no official 
figures at this time. 
Citizens of these 
countries are unable to 
leave due to diplomatic 
and economic 

There are a number of 
reasons contributing to 
the increase in transfer 
students (there is no 
actual figure yet). Two 
main reasons are the 
excellent programs 
offered in Petroleum 
Land Management and 
pre-med. Transfers who 
have attended larger 
colleges often find the 

smaller environment 
and the personal 
attention of Centenary 

Lambert is optimistic 
about the enrollment 
increase: "I think our 
economic standing is 
healthy for this year, 
especially when you 
look at the results of 
other colleges 
recruiting and their 
economic situation for 
^a^d sa" le is pleased 
that more students 
seem to be "staying" 
for the entire four 
years, and contributes 
this to all that 
Centenary has to offer 

President's Round Table 

By Lisa Thorton 
Dr. Will Andress 
spoke at the President's 
Round Table on 
Wednesday, September 
29. Dr. Andress, who 
has been the director of 
the choir for the past 
eight years, spoke on 
"An Inside Look at the 

Most everyone has 
heard the choir perform 
and knows of its 
reputation in the 
community a nd 
nationwide. Dr. Andress 
spoke of how the choir 
has obtained this 
reputation and how it all 

The choir's first 
director, "Cheesie", 
began the choir in 1941 
when he put an ad in the 
school newspaper for 
students to audition for 
the school choir. Forty- 
nine people were 
selected and this 

"An Inside Look At The Choir" 

number was used until a 
few years ago when Dr. 
Andress decided to 
expand the number of 
members. It was 
decided that the 
Centenary College 
Choir wouldn't be a 
typical school choir but 
would rather have a 
"different" look. 
Members dress today as 
they did when the choir 
first began in tuxedoes 
and gowns. The type of 
music wouldn't be all 
religious or school choir 
type but instead sing a 
mixture of many songs 
that would be 

Money to pay for 
outfits and equipment 
was raised much like it 
is today by giving 
concerts and making 
tours. When the choir 
h/st began, 100 
busi* «ssmen each gave 

$100 to help the choir get 
started. The choir gave 
some of its first 
concerts to the Lion's 
Convention and military 
air bases. The choir 
traveled to Japan and 
Korea and after being 
heard by a general, they 
were asked to sing at 
the Easter Sunrise at 
Okanowa. After Dr. 
Andress became 
director, the choir had a 
9 week stay giving 
concerts at Radio City 
Music Hall in New York 

Each year during 
January, February, and 
March, 100-125 people 
audition for the choir. 
Dr. Andress spoke of 
what he looks for in a 
choir member. One 
must have vocal ability, 
but not necessarily good 
solo ability and music 
reading ability. 

Members have to be 
able to learn songs 
quickly because each 
year about 100 pieces of 
music are learned. 
Members must also 
have a pleasing 
appearance on stage, a 
good personality, and 
good academics. 

The choir offers to 
each member travel 
and fun, but also an 
instant reward in 
performing, the joy of 
singing, and leadership 

The choir is an asset 
to Centenary because it 
offers good public 
relations and 
recruiting. It also offers 
good experiences for its 
members during their 
college years.

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Editor 

It seems to me that 
this letter should be 
unnecessary, but alas! 
it is not. As one who 
deals with the binding of 

(magazines) and sees 
that the bodes have all 
their pages, I am very 
much aware that things 
are disappearing from 
our library. It is 
unbelievable to me that 
a student of the caliber 

tof our Centenary 
tudents would be so 
.elfish as to take pages 
and whole magazines 
from their fellow 
students. Our copy 
machine prices are kept 
low, so that copies can 
be made, and should 
eliminate that type of 
activity. It is difficult to 

replace a periodical 
once it has been issued, 
and therefore the 
binding process is 
delayed, I see anger and 
frustration on faces 
everyday because 

someone is looking for 
something he or she 
cannot find. To top it all 
off the other day 
someone had stuck two 
magazines together 
with a wad of chewing 
gum. Is this 
kindergarten or 
college? The point of 
this letter is to put an 
alert out so that 
everyone is aware that 
these things happen, 

and watch for 
magazines marked 
Magale Library in 
places other than the 
Library. Please lets all 
of us be more 
considerate of others 
and leave the books and 
periodicals in place for 
the next person.

Dear editor, 

I am writing to 
respond to the piece 
entitled "Greatest 
Gifts: The Greeks" in 
last week's Speaker's 
Forum. Specifically, I 
would like to respond to 
the author's argument 
of how and why the 
Greek system 
contributes to 
Centenary. Please 
understand, I am not 
trying to rebut the 
author's claim that the 
Greek system as a 
whole does indeed 
contribute, for I 
strongly feel that it 
does, but rather am 
responding to the 
author's specific 
argument; a tired and 
generally meaningless 
one which I've been 
subjected to since my 
freshman year. That is, 
the author's contention 
that the Greek system, 
as a system, contributes 
because its individual 
members contribute. 

The author maintains 
that because "there are 
Greek members in 
every aspect of 
Centenary life from 
resident assistants to 
Student Government 
Association members to 
the President's own 
advisor council, 
"mentioning also the 
Dean's List and student 
leaders in general, that 
this is proof that the 
system contributes. 

I submit however that 
the argument is entirely 
false. The implication of 
it is obvious. If all these 
accomplishments are a 
direct result of the 
Greek System, then the 
individuals can lay no 
claim to them. Ford 
Williams was SGA 
president only because 
he was a greek. Kathy 
Amsler is a Resident 
Assistant only because 
she is greek. Missy 
Morn has served on 
PAC only because she is 
greek. Andy Freman is 
on the Dean's List only 
because he is greek. If 
these people had not 
been in the greek 
system, they would not 
have achieved any of 

Such an argument is 
ludicrous to the 
extreme. I contend that 
these people and all the 
other greeks on campus 

Sophomore Platforms 

Bob Thomas 

Tomorrow will be an 
excellent day for you, 
the sophomore class to 
voice your opinion on 
who your sophomore 
class senator should be. 

In last week's paper I 
told of my experiences 
and qualifications. Now 
I would like to take 
advantage of this 
opportunity and tell you 
what I would like to do 
as your sophomore 

First of all, I would 
like to be available to all 
students. If you have a 
thought, complaint, or 
suggestion, I would like 
you to feel comfortable 
enought to tell me about 

Secondly, as your 
sophomore senator, I 

would support and voice 
your opinions to SGA. I 
would take all the time 
and effort necessary to 
help you and your ideas. 

I " -id appreciate 
youi vote for sophomore 
senator. The voting 
table will be set up in 
the caf all day 
tomorrow — so go for it. 
Thank you, Bob 

believe the student 
representing his / her 
class should be part of 
all the Centenary ways 
of life and not limit 
his / her self to certain 
groups or areas. 

As a candidate for this 
position, I believe that I 
possess the creativity to 
best represent all facets 
of our very unique 
sophomore class. 

Kathy Howell 

The main duty of a 
SGA sophomore senator 
obviously is to represent 
the sophomore class to 
the best of his/her 
ability, not only at the 
meeting, but on and 
around campus. I 

would have achieved all 
that they have achieved 

whether or not they had 
joined a greek 
organization. Their 
achievements represent 
achievements and 
contributions, not 
organizational ones, 
and should be 
recognized as such. 

I agreee that the 
Greek system does 
contribute to the 
college. But let its 
position stand upon its 
own contributions 
rather than upon hard 
earned glory stolen 
from the individual 
members of that 

Brad Hoge 

My name is Brad 
Hoge, and I am running 
for Sophomore Senator. 
I am the most qualified 
person running for this 
position, because I have 
been working with the 
student government all 

year. I am Forums 
chairman, and I 
recently took over the 
calendar for this year. 
(There will be four 
forums including Kurt 
Thomas, William 
Christopher, and Harlen 
Ellison, for the same 
budget as last years' 
speaker.) I was on 
Judicial Board last 
year, and I have been 
active in many other 
issues on campus for the 
past two years. I am the 
only candidate with any 
experience in 

government, and I am 
very interested in the 
future of this college, I 
hope you are too. The 
voter turnout for our 
class has not been very 
good in the past, so 
please vote. 

Finally, I am highly 
offended by the author's 
claim that "Most of the 
student leaders on 
campus are Greek." 
Although the author 
gives us no clue as to 
what they define as a 
leader, I feel quite 
certain that one could 
find as many non- 
greeks as greeks to fit 
any reasonable 
definition of the term. 
Leadership does not 
depend on membership 
in a greek organization 
as the author seems to

Pride of Place 

"The Three M's 

By Dr. Darrell Loyless 
Vice President 
of The College 

We are well underway 
with a beautification 
project we call "The 
Three M's." It's a quick 
way to catch in a phrase 
the work we are doing 
around Magale Library, 
Meadows Museum, and 
the music building. 

Along with its many 
other tasks, our grounds 
crew has been dealing 
with the damages of 
that very cold February 
last winter. Many of the 
plants on campus, but 
most particularly 
around the library and 
music building, were 
killed by ice and snow. 
So, we've removed 
those plants and have 
drawn up plans to 
beautify those areas. As 
you have probably 
noticed, we are beyond 
the planning stage and 
are now putting in an 
underground watering 
system, which will be 
followed by new plants. 

As in all future 
beautification projects, 
we will provide 
adequate underground 
watering. This is what 
we have been working 
on recently. Once this is 
finished and the 
planting time is right, 

we will be getting the 
new plants in and 
putting the final touches 
on these three areas. By 
then, we will not only 
have recovered from 
the winter damage, but 
we will also have made 
these areas even 

The music building 
will have Dwarf 
Sansanqua, Liriope, and 
Indian Hawthorne. The 
Meadows Museum will 
have expanded beds of 
varied azaleas and 
sweet olive trees, and 
the Magale Library will 
have a newly beautified 
area of Liriope, Asian 
Jasmine, and Indian 
Hawthorne as well. 
These areas are most 
often visited by the 
public and are used a 
great deal by all of us in 
the Centenary family. 
Our objective is to make 
them first class. Clyde 
Gorum (a member of 
our Beautification 
Committee) is doing the 
major work on the three 

M's with help from 
Edwards Irrigation 
Company on the 
irrigation system. 

Recently Frank Akin 
(also a member of our 
Committee) donated an 
oak tree to the College. 
It's been planted in 
front of Sexton Hall, and 
I have heard that some 
of the residents of 
Sexton have taken an 
interest in this gift. With 
their help and special 
care, I'm sure this tree 
has a fighting chance in 
spite of the very dry 

I mention Mr. Akin's 
gift because it has 
captured the interest of 
some of our students. 
My hope is that, in the 
future, other members 
of the Centenary family 
will take an interest in 
various areas of the 
campus. It's just this 
kind of cooperation and 
pride that I was 
referring to in my first

By Leigh Weeks 

Who are those 
students that make a 
mad dash to finish lunch 
in the cafeteria before 
they "miss too much"? 
Why is it impossible for 
"independents" to even 
come within six feet of 
the Sexton lobby 
television set with the 
intent of switching the 
channel to NBC or CBS? 
And what sort of 
mumbo-jumbo do some 
students call out to each 
other in passing such as 
"Can you believe that 
rotten trick that little 
witch pulled on her best 

Haven't you heard? 
The caf comes secona 
between twelve and one 
o'clock Monday through 
Friday! People who 
wish to watch (tsk! 
tsk!) another show 
during that time must 
be loners and retreat to 
some other lobby or 
better yet to a television 
tucked away in a dorm 
room. And that mumbo- 
jumbo that closely 
resembles true-life 
drama is merely a 
gossip session for avid 
viewers of one of the

most popuiar daytime lunch hour usually 

a commercial in anticipation o further 

drama series, "All My 

"Groupies" as the 
fans can be called, are 
regularly seen clustered 
in various numbers 
around the television set 
in Sexton lobby. On a 
good day, when the 
drama promises to be 

As many as 15 soap 
starved students hang 
on the edge of their 
seats, fists clenched, 
waiting for the day's 
turn of events. Plus, the 

When i grow up i'm 



brings with it "drifters" 
who float in and out of 
campus buildings, 
searching for some way 
to pass the time before 
their next class. These 
students tumble in from 
the outside, peer at the 
television set and its 
"attachments" breathe 
some type of sigh, then 
wander on their merry 
way. These people, add 
to the viewership 
whether or not they care 
to acknowledge or 
admit it. Just ask any 
"AMC" fan; even 
catching a few 
scattered moments of 
the soap classifies you 
as a bonafide watcher! 

But then, there are 
members of a rare 
species who, no matter 
how many times they 
view a childish antic of 
Liza Colby, or witness a 
scheming act 
performed by Palmer 
Cortland, never seem to 

be capable of grasping 
the excitement the soap 
has to offer. Take for 
example, sophomore 
Suzie Knoop who 
recently sat in on an 
"AMC" gathering. 
Admist an on screen 
discussion of Jenny 
Gardner, an 18 year-old 
who is repeatedly "done 
wrong", and admist 
comments by several 
concerned viewers 
concerned with Jenny's 
misfortune, Suzie made 
the mistake of 
inquiring, ''Who's 
Jenny?" An entire room 
of shocked students 
chorused in a loud, 
disbelieving voice, 
"WHO'S JENNY?", as 
if every sane., person 
should be familiar with 
Jenny Garner from 
Pine Valley! 

The faculty 
seems heartless and 
cruel in its schedule 

planning. Rumors are 
circulating that a 
committee many be 
formed to discuss the 
matter of planning a 
more considerate class 
times. Iastead of M-5 
beginning at 1:00, why 
not 1:05? This would 

allow "AMC" fans 
plenty of time to regain 
their composure, gather 
their books, and scurry 
to class. As the situation 
presently stands , 
students must 
deliberate the question, 
"Should I stay and 

watch the confrontation 
between Steve and Nina 
that I have been waiting 
for since noon, or should 
I show up for class right 
on time?" However 
insensitive the M-5 
classes may appear to 
be, an "AMC" fan who 
erroneously scheduled 
a 12:35 class 
experiences withdrawal 

symptoms each 
Tuesday and Thursday 
when he or she must 
leave Silver Kane to 
fend for herself against 
evil step-sister Erica. 

A popular myth which 
has existed for years is 
the misconception that 
the soap opera audience 
is composed entirely of 
females. Just ask Tony 
Tafoya and Jim 
Goldman, two 
Centenary College 
baseball players who 
are sure to be found in 
Sexton's lobby at least 3 
out of the 5 days of the 
week. In fact, Jim, has 
been instilled with the 
duty of keeping peace 
and order within the 
viewing and hearing 
range. It is usually he 
who repeatedly 
"Shhhhhh"'s noisy 
intruders and clears 
bodily obstructions 
from in front of the 

The bond between 
"All My Children" fans 
is a secure one. Each 
share one common goal 
when they gather in 
front of that magical 
box that brigns to them 
the wonderful and 
wicked moments of 
Pine Valley citizens. 
They all hope to bring 
some sort of moral 
support to their favorite 
character and they long 
to aid in bringing the 
downfall of the show's 
most hated. Ah, tis but a 
touching scene to view: 
college students who 
have nothing more 
important to do than 
stick their noses in 
somebody else's 
business !

In 1685 a French 
nobleman was 
ambushed and 
murdered by his own 
men in East Texas. 
Sixteen years later this 
incident became a 
decorative illustration 
on a map depicting 
French claims in the 
Southeast and in 
southwestern portions 
of North America. 

The nobleman was the 
great French explorer, 
La Salle, and the map 
was a French 
publication which laid 
claim to lands that were 
claimed also by the 
Spanish government. 
This instance of 
European rivalry to 
possess the Southwest is 
one of twenty-two 
historical maps 
included in a 
exhibition, "Crossroads 
of Empire." 

This exhibition is 
based on a major 
collection of historical 
maps which is now on a 
two-year tour of the 
Southwest. The beauty 
of this photographic 
display is that it 
provides a brilliant 
summary of 
Southwestern history , 
as it is reflected through 
maps and other 
historical images. 
Besides the twenty-two 
historical maps, the 
exhibit also includes 
famous paintings of the 
first Spanish explorers 
and watercolor prints of 
Spanish missions in 

The exhibit contains a 
number of geographical 
surprises, for most 
early mapmakers were 
merely guessing about 
the Southwest. Some 
maps depict the 
Mississippi River 
flowing through the 
Southwest before 
heading South to the 
Gulf. Others depict 
mountain ranges in 
plains regions. Several 
insist that California is 
an island. 

Accompanying the 
exhibition is a lively 22- 
minute sound / color 
media program, which 
introduces the 
exhibition and 
Southwestern history 
from 1500 to 1900. It is 
available in the gallery 
for viewing at any time. 
The exhibition will 
continue on public 
display at Magale 
Library Gallery 
through October 24.

Once again it is time 
for the annual Red 
River Revel, and 
Centenary students are 
involved more than 
ever. The Chi-Omegas 
are busy selling steak 
on stick, and the Zetas 
are selling yummy and 
spicy Natchitoches 
meat pies. The varsity 

athletics are busy 
making money for their 
teams at coffee and 
apple streudle booths. 
And of course the Revel 
should not be complete 
unless the bands were 
not playing their tunes. 
Pete Ermes, A-Train, 
Heros, Louisiana Hot- 
Sauce and others had 

quite an audience. The 
Centenary Gymnasts 
had an exhibition, and it 
was marvelous. People 
all over the Revel were 
laughing, talking, 
eating, and having a 
wonderful time. Catch it 
before it's too late!!! 





Mothers and anxious fans wait in anticipation for the beginnino of

I saw the wind 

Two artists, a 
musician and a 
photographer, have 
created a truly 
innovative live concert. 
multi-image production 
which combines Mark 
Thompson's musical 
performance with Bob 
Jamieson's spectacular 
alpine photography 
highlighting eleven 
years of adventures in 
Alaska, the Yukon, 
British Columbia , South 
America, and North 
American Rockies. Bob 
adapts precisely 
arranged slides to 
Mark's songs as if 
creating the 
choreography for a 
dance. The 
arrangement turns 
their performance into 
a visual concert, a 
magical blend of sight 
and sound. I SAW THE 
WIND is unique, and the 
combined talents of 
these two individuals 
makes for an exciting, 
entertaining, and 

Never Summer 
Productions began in 
1977. Since that time, 
Mark and Bob have 
continuously refined 
and expanded on the 
original format, touring 
85 cities in 20 states 
during the 1981-82 school 
has a 90 percent return 
rate at colleges and 
universities . 

Mark's current 
album, Open Windows 
Empty Rooms, reflects 
only a part of the 
professionalism of the 
professionalism of the 
entertainer. Mark is a 
fine musical arranger, 
composer, and sensitive 
interpreter of other 
artists' songs. In 
addition to his own 
material, Mark 
performs some of the 
best work of such artists 
as Stevie Nicks, Cat 

Stevens, and Michael 
Murphy. A medley of 
"Rainbow Connection", 
"Somewhere over the 
Rainbow", and 
"Chasing Rainbows', 
combined with 
photographs provides 
one of the show's most 
memorable moments. 

In the summer of 1981, 
Bob led a 37 day, 250 
mile ski- 
expedition to the St 
Elias Mountains in the 
Yukon Territory in 
Canada. In 1982, Bob 
went to the Coast Range 
of British Columbia to 
lead a climb up Mt 
Waddington, the highest 
mountain in British 
Columbia, described a 
"A great spire poised in 
the void, an incredible 
nightmarish thing that 
must be seen to be 
believed, and then it is 
hard to believe." These 
adventures alone 
produced nearly 10,000 
photographs and two 
incredible stories. As a 
performer, Bob talks of 
his treks and climbs in a 
refreshing, non- 
traditional, perceptive, 
and humorous style. He 
improvises his way 
through the most 
horrific disasters and 
charms the listener in 
the process. 

Bob began his 
climbing career eleven 
years ago near Estes 
Park, Colorado. At the 
age of 19, he went to 
Alaska to climb Mr. 
McKinley (20,320'). In 
1977, he led a small 
expedition to South 
America to climb the 
world's highest active 
volcano, Mt. Cotopaxi 
(19,347') in Ecuador. In 
between major 
expeditions, Bob has 
photographed alpine 
climbs in the Canadian 
rockies, Grand Tetons 
and Wind River Ranges 
of Wyoming, the Oregon 

Cascades, the deserts of 
the Southwest and the 
Colorado Rockies. His 
photographs and 
articles have appeared 
in magazines and 
journals in Canada and 
the U.S. The 
photographs challenge 
us to see the world in a 
new perspective, far 
from the road's end.

Friday afternoon. The 
Revel grounds sit under 
the hot sun. The bare 
bones of the festival lie 
neatly arranged, fully 
exposed. The lines of 
bright colored tents 
stand out, easily traced 
by the wandering eye. 
They're empty now, 
sheltering only patches 
of concrete and asphalt. 
The stages rise stark 
and ready, faced with 
chairs and bleachers. 
Empty Waiting. The 
tables are clean and 
neat. The grounds look 
recently policed. 

The emptiness is 
illusionary, relative. A 
small army, uniformed 
in tee-shrits and jeans, 
crawls over the grounds 
— putting on the last 
minute touches. Big 
machinery — forklifts, 
tractors — rumbles 
here and there. The air 
is a constant clank and 
clatter as tent poles, 
chairs, tables are tossed 
back and forth, set up, 
or taken away. 
Everyone's so bent on 
their own tasks that a 
pair of explorers goes 
completely unnoticed. A 
thin, constant 

sculpture; finely lined 
prints; paintings of all 
hues; piles of cloth and 
fur irresistably calling 

the fingers and hands to 

The tables, chairs, 
bleachers are waiting 
no longer. Full to 
overflowing with 
resting crowds, they've 
scattered, tumbled, 
twisted far out of their 
once regimented 

Indeed, those crowds 
of all imaginable types 
of people: young, old, 
short, tall, fat, bearded, 
suit clad or wearing but 
tights and leotards, 
heavyladened — from 
the flesh cloaking the 

Revel's bones. The 
surging, throbbing tide 
surrounds the carefully 
laidout rows and aisles. 
The precise scheme 
dissolves into a well 
rounded, chaotic swirl. 
The logical lines 
disappear in the 
unpredictable, even 
random knots and 
crowds. Even the army 
of yesterday, still in full 
force is no longer 
noticeable amid the 

movement runs through 
the emptiness. 

Saturday afternoon. 
The Revel is in full 
swing. The grounds are 
hardly recognizable as 
the same ones as 
yesterday. The barren 
skelton has taken on full 
flesh. The bright tents 
now can hardly cantain 
the wealth within. The 
tents no longer catch the 
eye, being outdone by 
the array of treasures 
all around: smooth, cool 
pottery; quiet, strong 

The careful planning 
has at last borne its 
blossom — this free 
floating, undefineable 
millieu that draws us

Soccer team remains 

By Soccer Fan 

This past weekend the 
Gent kickers stretched 
their four game winning 
streak to seven. The 
Gents opened up the 
weekend with at 5-0 
victory over St. Paul 
Bible College of 
Minnesota in the East 
Texas Shoot-Out at Le 
Tourneau. Amaar 
Anbouba, Jeff Foster, 
and Jay Poss scored the 
goals for the kickers. 
Goal keeper Bo Mangum 
and a solid defense 
recorded the Gent's 
first shutout of the year. 
On Saturday the Gents 
raced a strong John 
Brown University team 
in the championship 
game. This was the first 
time a Centenary soccer 
team had a chance to 
bring home "the gold", 
the Gents rose to the 
occasion as Amaar 
Anbouba scored on a 
Sam St. Phard assist to 
put the Gents ahead 1-0. 
Fifteen minutes later, 
Doug Crone blasted a 

free-kick that caromed 
off the cross bar to 
Amaar Ambouba who 
scored to make it 2-0 
Gents. John Brown 
University scored to 
make it 2-1 at the half. 
Ten minutes into the 
half, Jay Poss 
connected on a cross 
field pass to St. Phard 
who smashed the ball 
into the net, the Gents 
led 3-1, J.B.U. scored 
again, but when the 
smoke cleared the 
Gents had won the game 
3-2 and consequently, 
the tournament. All- 
Tournament players for 
the Gents were: Matt 
Cardillo, Jay Poss, Bo 
Mangum, Sam St. 
Phard, and Tournament 
Most Valuable Player 
Jeff Foster. Keith 
McPherson, Scott 
Davidson, Jeff Buseick, 
and Jack VanConner 
helped keep the defense 
sound. Substitutes 
Charlie Warren, Ron 
Evans and Chris Hersch 
were very impressive. 

On Sunday the Gents 
came home and paced 
their archrivals, 
Milsaps College. Jay 
Poss scored the first 
goal unassisted to put 
the Gents ahead 1-0. The 
score remained 1-0 at 
the half. The Gents 
played marvelously in 
the second half as 
Anbouba and St. Phard 
assisted Jay Poss on a 
goal to make the score 
2-0. Near the end of the 
game, James Breeding 
and Keith McPherson 
assisted Anbouba who 
scored to make the final 
score 3-0. 

After the game team 
captain Scott Davidson, 
on behalf of the Gents, 
turned over Centenary's 
first ever soccer trophy 
to school President Don 
Webb. The Gents are 
now 7-0 and will be 
traveling to New 
Orleans Friday to face 
the University of New 
Orleans and Nicholls 
State University. Gents 
we are proud of you. 



The new tennis complex was broken in right last 
Fnday by the Ladies tennis team who defeated 
Louisiana Tech 5-4. Chalking up wins for Centenary in

Do we need the change? 

Chairman of AD HOC Committee says yes.... 

Dr. Donald 


ba strengthening the core 
curriculum, initiated a 
1 study approximately 
the E one and a half years ago 
custojto review the general 
education at Centenary 
College. His intentions, 
according to Dr. Darrell 
Loyless, were not to 
"toughen'' the 
curriculum, but to make 
it more "rigorous and

Dr. Loyless, Vice 
President of the college, 
is the chairman of the 
Ad Hoc Committee 
formed by Dr. Webb to 
revise the general 

educa tion core 

requirements of the 

A misconception 
some may have is that 
this move is directed 
only towards Centenary 
College. Colleges and 
universities throughout 
the entire nation are 
experiencing the same 
study and Loyless 
believes this is a 
consequence of an age 
of specialization and 
also a reassessment of 
general education for 
college students. 

According to Loyless, 

"I believe that 
Centenary will benefit if 
we can work out the 
marketing competition. 
I think we'll benefit 
from the fact that 
general education will 
make for a more 
deliberate and 

curriculum." However, 
as he pointed out at a 
President's Round 
Table one and a half 
years ago, there are 
three criteria which 
must be met in order for 
the proposal to be 
successfully instigated: 
the process must be 
open; the program 
selected must be 

rigorous and of quality; 
and finally, the process 
must be democratic — 
everyone must have 
their say. 

The only problem he 
suspects with the 
possibility of added 
requirements deals with 
externalities. For 
example, education 
majors have a number 
of courses they must 
take in order to become 
accredited. Dr. Loyless 
does not want the Ad 
Hoc reports to take the 
blame when these 
externalities are 
responsible for putting 
extra burdens on 


He views the proposed 
curriculum change as 
"healthy'' for 
Centenary and is 
confident the proposal is 
"on the right tr?.ck." He 
stresses the need for 
general education in 
today 's educational 
system by saying, 
"general education is a 
vestibul that all 
students stand in before 
going on to their major, 
and it is important that 
these majors are 
supported with a 
thorough background. 

....But the student debate continues 


By J. Alan Irvine 

TheEd-pol committee 
held an open meeting 
Tuesday, October 5, 
11:15 a.m. in Mickle 114 
in order to hear student 
input on the newest 
Proposal for upgrading 
the academic core. The 
discussion quickly 
centered on but a couple 
°f intensely debated 

The first point to 
come up centered on the 
increase of required 
hours in several core 
ar eas, especially the 
large increases in math 
science. Dr. Morrill 
Pointed out that the 
science classes without 
kbs, which would be 
ne eded to meet the 
Proposed 10 hour 
^uirement, are few in 
^mber and not offered 
at a very high rate. He 
^ed if, with this state 
!* affairs, the proposed 
J n crease would be 
lo gistically possible. 
^°ng the same lines, 

several students pointed 
out that increasing the 
required hours would 
probably result only in 
students taking more of 
the "crib" courses, 
which struck them as 
defeating the entire 
purpose of increasing 
their exposure to these 

This latter point came 
up several times. Many 
students questioned the 
logistics of the new 
core. Ford Williams 
pointed out that it would 
overburden some 
majors who have large 
requirements on the 
major. Greg Blackman 
brought up the question 
as to how it would affect 
transfers and people 
who change majors as 
far as greatly 
increasing their stay in 
school. Karen 
Klusendorf and Lisa 
King both pointed out 
that it would eliminate 
the opportunity for 
students to take courses 
which they see as being 
jgi pfnl to them, but 

which are outside either 
their major or the core. 
Alan Irvine wondered 
what provisions would 
be made for double- 
majors, since the core 
would effectively 
eliminate these without 
allowing for any type of 

Another major topic 
of contention was the 
effect on enrollment. 
Todd Anders, among 
others, suggested that 
increasing the core 
would cause a decrease 
in enrollment. He 
argued that such a 
heavy load of 
requirements would 
discourage many 
freshman and transfers 
who perhaps look at 
Centenary in the first 
place because it is less 
structured in it's 
curricula than most 
places. Another student 
agreed, stating that 
while she was in favor of 
some core 
requirements, if she had 
been confronted with 
t h e proposed 

requirements, she 
probably would not 
have come here. She 
also raised the question 
of how many hours 
should constitute 
' ' Adequate exposure , ' ' 
and when you do 
consider a student "well 

Greg Blackman also 
tried to raise the moral 
issued of forcing people 
to take certain courses 
and thus decreasing 
their academic 

The faculty in turn did 
not appear very 
receptive to any of these 
issues. They repeatedly 
attacked all of the above 
critcisms. Both Herr 
Watts and Dr. Seidler 
frequently expressed 
the opinion that if a 
student makes mistakes 
in scheduling, has a 
poor advisor, changes 
majors, or is in a major 
requiring an excessive 
amount of hours that the 
increased burden that 
this puts upon them is 
simply too bad, that it is 

not the faculty's 
responsibility to insure 
that a student graduates 
in four years. The 
faculty's refusal to 
accept the student's 
input finally led Dr. 
Scott to take his 
colleagues to task, 
severly criticizing them 
for ignoring what the 
students had to say. 

Dr. Seidler also 
pointed out that the new 
core would give 
incoming students a 
wider exposure, which 
may enable them to 
better decide what they 
want to study, as well as 
give them a better 
background to draw 
upon once they enter the 
job market. 

Although no one came 
out against the proposed 
foreign language 
requirement, both Drs. 
Gottlob and Pennuel 
spoke at length in favor 
of it. 

A second meeting for 
student input was set 
Tuesday, October 12, 
1 1 oo a.m. —

O I 9 JTf SGA President 

S M. OT*UY¥l opposes curriculum 


to the Editors 

At the November 18 
faculty meeting there 
will be a vote on a 
proposed new 
curriculum. The new 
core will markedly 
tighten the confines the 
students must work in. 
Both the number and 
the type of courses 
required will be 
increased. Before this 
vote I strongly urge the 
students to let their 
thoughts be known and I 
strongly urge the 
faculty to consider all 
the implications of the 

These changes will 
restrict the students 
freedom. Although the 
students can select 
courses within the core 
structure, there are 
other courses, such as 
photography, that get 
left out. Furthermore, 
the student's "margin 
for error" is reduced to 
practically zero. If a 
student gets bad advice 
and takes courses that 
will not apply toward 

the required core he can 
very quickly get behind. 
Students can also get 
behind very easily if 
they change their major 
(which occurs quite 
frequently at Centenary 
and all other colleges). 
Is this fair? 

Another consideration 
which should be mulled 
over is the cost 
involved. With the 
restructuring of the 
core many departments 
will get an increased 
load and new teachers 
will need to be hired. 
For a few years now, 
several of Centenary's 
departments have been 
requesting new faculty 
due to a shortage of 

Departments such as 
biology have been 
terribly overworked. 
Yet no new faculty were 
hired due to "budget 
limitations". Now a 
proposal is being made 
that will make the 
situation even worse. Is 
this fair?

Deadline for copy is Sunday, 6 p.m. 

Finally, the effect this 
proposal will have on 
enrollment must be 
scrutinized and 
Centenary's financial 
future depends on it. 
Real or imagined, many 
students have the 
impression the new core 
will be 
overburdensome. Many 
feel they will not be able 
to be adequately 
prepared for their 
chosen profession if 
they do not have a 
certain amount of 
freedom in course 
selection. Because of 
this, the danger of 
Centenary's enrollment 
decreasing is great. 
This problem is 
compounded by the 
effect the new core will 
have on transfer 
students. Centenary is 
depending more and 
more on transfers. This 
year in particular we 
had a drop in freshman 

students but an 1 
increase in transfer 
students. This proposal 
will hinder our transfer 
student recruitment. 
With the increased 
requirements, even few 
hours will transfer in. 
No student likes to lose 
hours. The increase of 
lost hours may very 
well make the transfer 
not worthwhile and the 
student will stay away. 

The implications are 
obvious. Centenary may 
very easily find itself in 
financial trouble. We 
need more money for 
faculty yet will 
probably get less due to 
a decrease in students. 
This should not be taken 
sitting down. A realistic 
compromise, if 
possible, should be 
proposed, or the old 
curriculum should be 
left alone.

Dear Editors: 

As a former station 
manager, program 
director, fundraiser and 
co-builder of KSCL, I 
feel compelled at this 
point to interject what I 
consider to be a few 
salient comments 
regarding KSCL's 
current state of affairs. 

I should first remind 
you that the station 
personnel initially 
worked many hours for 
no pay at all and that 
the station was put "on 
the air" for the princely 
sum of about $700.00. If 
memory serves me 
correctly, I believe that 
our first year total 
budget was less than 
$1,000,00. Additionally, 
station personnel paid 
their own way to 
numerous other out of 
town college FM 
stations and to Atlanta, 
to attend the 

From the 
Wizard's Kettle 

By J. Alan Irvine 

Author's note: The 
following column 
originally appeared in 
the March 4, 1982 issue 
of the Conglomerate, 
and hence went unread 
since that was the issue 
which was stolen even 
as it was distributed. 
The column has been 
altered somewhat from 
the original to bring it 
up to date. 

Well, at last it's 
actually happened. Mid- 
term, as much as we 
prayed that it wouldn't, 
has finally risen up to 
meet us. We have no 
choice any more but to 
accept the awful reality 
of it all. The most 
hideous aspect of mid- 
term is, of course, all 
those awful tests. 

These tests come in 
many different 
varieties , each 
requiring different 
styles of test-taking 
strategies to be 
successfuly mastered. 
To aid in the essential 
task of surviving all 
these mid-terms I have 
compiled the following 
list of important test 
related terms and their 

Subjective test — one 

where you put forth 
your opinions and 
beliefs, and defend 

Objective test — one 
where you must figure 
out the teacher's 
opinions and beliefs, 
and defend them. 

Multiple choice — A 
question followed by 
four rather vague 
answers, none of which 
are really right. 

True-false — the 
questions are always 
sort of one and kind of 
the other. They almost 
always follow some kind 
of pattern. Except when 
they don't. 

Fill-in- the-blank or- 
iginally true-false, but 
the teacher forgot the 
answer and / or part of 
the question. He wants 
his memory jogged. 

Matching — 
somewhat akin to 
building a model 
airplane without the 
instruction book. 
Everything fits, the 
question is where? 
Some answers fit every 
question, some look like 
they're from a different 

Short-answer — if the 
answer is short, why do 
they expect us to fill up 
a half a page with it? 

Discussion — in 
Freshman English they 

pound into you that the 
only way to write an

The problem that the 
station seems to be 
having at this time 
seems to me to be a lack 
of "esprit of corps", 
compounded by what 
amounts to the staff 
wanting to be paid for 
what is in effect "on the 
job training". The way 
to increase support by 
all the factions on the 
campus and build 
"esprit de corps" is to 
become more intensely 
involved with the 
station yourselves, 
breaking out of the 
"radio clique" that may 
exist and involve more 
of the student body with 
your enthusiasm and

The General 
Accounting Office's 
latest figures show over 
700,000 non-registrants. 
This is more than 20 
times the entire 

population of Federal 
prisons. The overall 
compliance rate with 
registration is 93 
percent, according to 
Selective Service. This 
is well below 98 percent 
Selective Service 
officials have said must 
be reached for the 
system to be considered 
fair and effective. Even 
at the height of the 
Vietnam war, 
compliance with draft 
registration never fell 
below 98 percent. 

The current 
prosecutions will raise 
the issue of illegal 
selective prosecution, 
said Martin. "I'm going 
to be prosecuted not 
because I didn't register 
for the draft, but 
because I publicly 
pointed out the failure of 
the program and the 
aggressive foreign 
policy behind it," he 
said. Martin was re- 
elected this spring as 
student body president 
of the University of 
Northern Iowa, in Cedar 

"Draft registration is 
a political law designed 
to force people into 
supporting policies that 
they would not support 
otherwise. It has 
nothing to do with 
national security," said 
Martin. 4 'Non- 
registration forces a 
debate on foreign 

Other non-registrants 
agreee. For them, non- 
registration is an act of 
conscience. "Draft 
registration is 
preparation for war," 
said Russell F. Ford, 
who was imprisoned 
before his trial when he 
refused bail. "I am not 
willing to sign my life 
over to the Government 
that brought us 
Vietnam, Watergate 
and the Trident 
submarine. I am not 
willing to withhold my 
protest... until the 
nuclear arms race has 
reached its logical 
conclusion in a nuclear 
holocaust. . .1 am 
defending a view that 

wars, like poverty and 
prison, are neither 
necessary nor 
inevitable. They 
transgress the human 
spirit and ought to be 
abolished;' he said. 

The Internal Revenue 
Service is helping 
Selective Service to 
enforce registration. In 
raid-August, IRS mailed 
warning letters to an 
initial 33,000 suspected 
non-registrants born in 
1963, said Roscoe L. 
E g g e r Jr., 
Commissioner of 
Internal Revenue. 
These names were 
drawn from a list of 
250,000 names IRS found 
by checking its files 
with Selective Service 
lists of non-registrants. 
Egger said IRS planned 
to mail notices to the 
others, and later 
provide up to 200 names 
to Selective Service. 
These, he said, "will be 
selected on a random 
basis" from those who 
fail to register after 
receiving warnings 
mailed by IRS. 

In late August, an 
amendment sponsored 
by Sen. Hayakawa (R- 
CA) and Rep. Solomon 
(R-NY) to the Defense 
Authorization Bill had 
passed both houses of 
Congress and was 
before President 
Reagan. The bill would 
require male college 
students applying for 
grants and loans 
through the 
Government to prove 
that they have 
registered for the draft. 
Some lawyers question 
the constitutionality of 
such legislation. "This 
is certain to generate 
some lawsuits," said 
irvin Bomberger of the 
National Interreligious 
Service Board for 
Conscientious Objectors 
(NISBCO). Draft 
r e s i s t e r Martin, 
however, said these 
governmental efforts 
"show what a total 
failure the registration 
program is, in terms of 
enforcement; they have 
to go outside the 
existing law to enforce 

Jim Feldman, staff 
lawyer for CCCO the 
country's largest 
agency for draft and 
military counseling, 
said a private non- 
registrant's chance of 
being prosecuted for 
non-registration is slim 

— less than one in 1000 

— but present. It is now 
Justice Department 
policy not to prosecute if 
the resister registers 
before indictment. 
"Those willing to risk 
prosecution should 
know that there are 
legal defenses that can 
be made, and it may be 
difficult for the 
Government to prove its 
case," said Feldman. 
CCCO was founded in 
1948 as the Central 
Committee for 
Objectors. Since then it 
has served continuously 
as a national, non-profit 
agency counseling

Backpacking: An Inquiry 

You've got a Frien< 

By Carlos Munoz 

In the darkness of the 
first evening, the serene 
solitude becomes very 
apparent. The fact that 
we are the only ones 
who know of our exact 
existence in time and 
space brings inner joy. 
In this tranquil setting, 
we have no distractions 
preventing us from 
getting deeply involved 
in reconciling with life. 
Life, when darkness 
falls, drives us to that 
which is closest to 
us... in this case our own 
existence. And in 
searching our own, life 
takes on a new 
meaning; maybe even 
to the point of 

In the morning, a 
misty shroud blankets 
the valleys. The cricket 
symphony has 
altogether come to an 
end, except for a couple 
here and there who are 
either too energetic or 
too stubborn to 
discontinue. The birds 

chirp about, prancing 
from branch to branch, 
putting man's sleepy 
eyes into a trance. The 
rising sun slowly 
pierces through the 
horizon, giving the 
valleys below a 
different identity to the 
one we saw at 
yesterday's sunset. The 
sounds of unceasing 
water flow, with each 
rivulet and trickle 
having its own cadence, 
brings with it the 
mystery of 
undeciphered tales of 
the ages. A gentle 
breeze stirs the 
treetops, bringing sweet 

One pities the 
civilized man who 
cannot coexist in 
harmony with nature — 
in accord with each 
other, balanced and 

The day picks up with 
plenty of exercise. On 
the slow, gruelling 
uphill climb, we 
perspire as if in a sauna 
and stop quite often to 
catch our breath. 

Fighting through briars 
along the ridges, we put 
minute strokes of "war 
paint" on our legs. Then 
there's the break — we 
unload the packs and sip 
some water. Pain from 
previously unconscious 
muscles crops up to the 
soaked surface. 
Sweating brings about 
healing — easing 
tensions, anxieties, and 
fears. The exercise 
rejuvenates the mind, 
the spirit and the soul. 
Along with the workout, 
we realize how out of 
shape we are due to the 
lack of exercise, and 
bad diet. Then there's 
the downhill... the leaves 
with their stingers 
brush against the legs 
(and we become aware 
of how sensitive they 
are and notice the 
existence of so many 
nerve endings). We pick 
up momentum bounding 
down, which makes it 
more precarious, since 
one false step could put 
us out of commission. 
With the approach of 
sunset, we agree on a 

suitable campsite. Out 
come the sleeping bags 
and bedrolls, the food, 
and convenient sleeping 
attire. Then, free of the 
pack's weight, our 
springy steps lead to the 
nearby creek. There, a 
chilly immerson 
invigorates the weary 
muscles and bones, and 
rinses us clean from the 

The outdoors offers 
the greatest opportunity 
to understand the self 
better. In the evening, 
you can give undivided 
attention to your 
companions. The self 

transparent... no roles to 
play or to satisfy... no 
masks to hide behind. 
You pass through 
ordeals that bring you 
closer to your friends. 
Not only do you 
comprehend what they 
know, but also learn 
about their innermost 
feelings. And in 
learning who your 
friends are, you learn 
more about yourself.

spring semester," Nix 
said. "The Educational 
Testing Service (which 
administers the NTE) 
has replaced the 
Commons test with the 
new Core Battery, but 
the new test has not yet 
been validated. Our 
validation process will 
be complete in June of 
1983, but in the 
meantime we cannot 
legally use an 
un validated test as a 
criterion for job 
placement. Therefore, 
those persons needing to 
know before then 
whether or not they 
have passed can meet 
the requirement by 
passing the Old 
Common test." 

All 1982-83 examinees 
are required to take the 
new test. Their scores 
will be used in the 
validation procedure, 
establishing state 
norms and providing 
data on which a new 
cutoff score will be 
based. About 1,500 

persons are expected to 
take the test. 

Although the old test 
is optional, Nix 
suggested that many 
examinees might wish 
to take both tests as a 
means of improving 
their chances of passing 
at least one. A passing 
score on either exam 
will satisfy state 
requirements, but for 
this year only. Only the 
new Core Battery Test 
will be used once it is 

Examinees pay $45 to 
take the Core Battery, a 
six-hour exam 
comprising two-hour 
modules in professional 
education, general 
educa tion , and 
communications skills, 
and $30 to take a three- 
hour test in their major 
subject area. The 
subject area tests, 
which have not 
undergone major 
changes, will be 
administered October 
30, 1982. 

Nix pointed out that 

more than 70 percent of 
examinees made 
passing scores on the 
NTE in 1981-82 as 
compared to only 60 
percent passing in 1978, 
the first year the test 
was required. 

'The Colleges of 
Education have 
accepted the challenge 
of preparing their 
graduates to pass this 
test," Nix said. "We 

have worked together to 
raise standards in 
teacher training, by 
increasing the entrance 
requirements to a 2.2 
grade point average and 
the graduation 
requirements to a 2.5 
and by tripling the 
number of student 
teaching hours from 90 
to 270.

that with the standards

We are not brought

best friend, calling 
because you haven't 
seen each other in over 
an hour? That special 
girl or guy you just 
spent all afternoon 
with? Your mother, who 
you talked to for two 
hours just yesterday? 

When the phone rings 
at Open Ear, they know 
it's someone with a 
problem. And if you're 
the type of person who is 
willing to listen, care, 
and provide trust and 
reassurance, Open Ear 
needs you. 

Open Ear is a a 
crisis / referral "hot

serving the Shreveport- 
Bossier area for over 11 
years. Over 600 
volunteers have 
manned the phones 
during this time, many 
of whom have been with 
the center since its 
beginning in 1971. 

Open Ear maintains a 
staff of about 70 
volunteers, each of 
whom works only one or 
two nights a month. 
Volunteers come from 
the Shreveport 
community and a large 
majority of these are 
Centenary students.

By Bess Robinson 
Features Editor 

It seems that nearly 
every department on 
campus has something 
new to be proud of this 
year. ..the chemists 
nave created a new 
compound, the 
sociologists are 
sponsoring a volunteer 
program at a nearby 
elementary school for 
the first time, a new 
book is about to become 
a reality for its 
collaborators in the 
English department. 
Well, the Biology 
department has 
something new this 
year, too — a 
greenhouse ! 

Actually, the original 
design for Mickle Hall 
included a 
hemispherical dome 
type of greenhouse. But 
in 1948, when the 
building was under 
construction, funds ran 
short, and the plans for 
a greenhouse were 
scrapped. A small (8' by 
16' ) ''lean-to" 
greenhouse, made of 
fiberglass and the 
lumber torn out of the 
freshman chemistry 
lab, was built in 1974, 
and enlarged to 16' by 
16' in 1976. It was 
around this time that a 
Mr. Raymond first 
expressed an interest in 
donating his own 
greenhouse to 
Centenary. A little over 
a year ago, he made an 
official offer, and, after 
receiving authorization 
and some funding from

the school, plans for 
relocating Mr. 
Raymond's greenhouse 
were begun. 

The auditorium roof 
that formerly supported 
the little lean-to had 
proved to be a good 
place for a greenhouse, 
so that's where the new 
one was slated to go. 
The second-story 
location discouraged 
vandalism and was 
easily accessible to 
professors who 
sometimes needed to 
nip out of class to find a 
plant for a particular 
demonstration. Since 
'the roof had no steel 
structural beams 
underneath it, however, 
construction workers 
put extenders on the 
vertical beams and laid 
steel beams across 
them to form a platform 
for the new building. A 
concrete slab was 
secured to the platform, 
and provided the 
foundation for the 

While all this 
construction was going 
on, biology professors 
Brad McPherson and 
Ed and Beth Leuck 
were disassembling Mr. 
Raymond's greenhouse. 
The 10-year-old 
structure consists 
mostly of double- 
strength (and therefore, 
relatively hail-proof) 
glass panes and 
aluminum beams, 
which fitted easily into 
Ed's van. But the 
largest aluminum 
beams, which measure 
28 feet in length, made 

the trip to campus in a 
Southfield High School 
bus! Once all of the 
components made it to 
Mickle, students Joe 
Jewell, Tim and Jim 
Ogden, and Greg Brown 
helped the three 
professors reconstruct 
the greenhouse. More 
recently, Tom O'Mara 
and David Shoffner 
have spent several 
hours on the roof 
stripping caulking off 
the aluminum beams. 

Mr. Raymond's 
donation is expected to 
be an invaluable 
teaching facility. It will 
be utilized by a variety 
of classes, including the 
general biology 
sections, the three 
botany courses 
(general, plant 
systematica, and plant 
morphology), the 
ecology classes, and a 
number of independent 
studies. Dr. Ed Leuck 
hopes to use the building 
as he continues 
research on an 
extension of his 
dissertation ( growing, 
studying, and 
hybridizing a particular 
genus of cactus). 

Dr. Beth Leuck 
expresses the 
department's gratitude 
to Mr. Raymond for his 
greenhouse, and to the 
college for its support, 
saying that "we sure 
need it, and it will 
definitely increase the 
'botany experience' of 
our majors who will now 
be able to have some 
'hands-on' experience 
with growing and 
experimenting with

There are five great 
reasons why Centenary 
College believes its 1982- 
83 Friends of Music 
season is the best ever: 
Mark Westcott, pianist ; 
Chanticleer, male vocal 
ensemble; the Verdehr 
Trio, Ralph Evans, 
violinist , accompa nied 
by Donald Rupert, 
pianist; and Heinz 
Wunderlich, organist. 

Westcott opened 
season Sunday, Oct. 10, 
with a concert at 3 p.m. 
in Hurley Auditorium. A 
finalist in a recent Van 
Cliburn International 
Piano Competition, he 
has played under 
George Solti, conductor 
of the Cleveland 

Chanticleer, a group 
of 10 dashing young 
men, has been 
described as "An elite 
men's chorus," (San 
Francisco Chronicle) 
and "One of the most 
beautiful musical 
experiences of my life," 
(Robert Shaw, Atlanta 
Symphony). They will 
sing Monday, Nov. 22, in 
an 8 p.m. concert in 
Hurley Auditorium. 

The Verdehr Trio 
including Elsa Ludewig- 
Verdehr, clarinet; Gary 
Kirkpa trick, piano; and 
Walter Verdehr, violin, 
has performed 
extensively in the 
United States and 

Centenary's own 
Donald Rupert will 
accompany Ralph 
Evans, violinist, 
Tuesday, Feb. 22, at 8 
p.m. in Hurley. Evans 
began his musical 
studies at age 5 in 
Vienna and now 
concertizes in the 
United States and 

Completing the 
season will be Heinz 
Wunderlich, organist, 
who will perform March 
18 at 8 p.m. in Brown 
Chapel. The Washington 
Post said "A playful 
delight in registration, a 
realization... a marvel 
of joyous motion... what

My Sister 
In This House" 

"My Sister in This 
House" continues this 
week at the Marjorie 
Lyons Playhouse on the 
Centenary College 
campus. The play 
begins at 8 p.m. on Oc- 
tober 14,, 15 and 16 and 
is free to all Centenary 
students. Adult tickets 
are $6.00. 

The play is a produc- 
tion of stunning force 
that involves the 
elements of English, 
psychology, sociology 
and philosophy. It is 
based on the 1933 Fren- 
ch murder case that in- 
spired Jean Genet's 
'The Maids." 

Featured are Cindy 
Hawkins and Cara 
Derrick, two of Cen- 
tenary's outstanding ac- 
tresses, who combine 
with newcomer Lisa 
Chaisson and 
Shreveport's own Anna 
Chappell to create a web 
of stunning emotion and 
violence, bringing to life 
playwright Mendy 
Kesselmar's tale of two 
servant sisters attached 
to an existence of 
bourgeois and idleness 
provided by the 
household they work in.

Soccer Team Continues Winning Ways 

By Soccer Fan 
The Centenary Gents 
proved this weekend 
that they can handle 
Division One 
competition, as they 
defeated the University 
of New Orleans and 
Nicholls State 

The Gents opened the 
weekend against U.N.O. 
there. About twenty 
minutes into the half 
Jay Poss hit Sam St- 
Phard with a pass that 
St-Phard converted into 
a goal. With about 15 
minutes left in the half, 
Poss chipped a soft shot 
that found the back of 
the net. The Gents led 2- 
0 at the half and that 
was also the final score 
of the game, Centenary 
2- U.N.O. -0 : 

The next day the 
Gents traveled to 
Thibodaux to play 
Nicholls State 
University. The kickers 
started off slowly as 
Nicholls got the first 
goal, but about 15 
minutes later St-Phard 
scored off of a Matt 
Cardillo assist. Minutes 
later Poss scored off of 
a Amaar Anbouba 
assist. The Gents led at 
the half 2-1. Near the 
beginning of the second 

* Quaj 

half, Poss was ejected 
from the game for no 
apparent reason and the 
Gents had to play one 
man short the rest of the 
game. Moments after 

the ejection ot Poss, 
Anbouba scored to 
make it 3-1. Nicholls 
State scored again to 
make the score 3-2. The 
Gents would not be 

denied though, as St- 
Phard chipped a perfect 
pass to Anbouba who 
touched the ball into the 
net to make it 4-2 Gents. 
Nicholls State scored 

once more to make the 
4-3. James Breeding 
iced the game for the 
Gents as he scored to 
make the final score 5-3 

The victories make 
the Gents 9-0 for the 
season. The soccer 
team now possesses the 
best record in the entire 
south and the second 

best record in tl 
nation ( D ul 
University is 11-0). m

37 goals in 9 gami

To Win 

The Ladies have a 
relatively short team 
(no one over 6 feet) and 
will compensate for 
their \ 'shortness" by 

playing a faster, more 
defense oriented game. 
Of his team Coach St. 
Andre said that they are 
the kind of club that if 
they're playing will be 
in the game, but that 
there are no game 
breakers. There are 
good experienced 
players coming back 
and the new girls have 
all played in basketball 
oriented programs. 

There is a lot of depth to 
the team and Coach St. 
Andre knows that his 
reserve players have 
the ability to come in off 
the bench and score 12 

points. When asked who# 
the stars of the team are ♦ 
he replied, "I don't want f 
to single out one girl — " 
we're more team 
oriented. All the girls 
realize the job we have 
to do. It takes all of

The Centenary 
President's Advisory 
Council (PAC) has 
announced its members 
for the 1982-83 school 
term. Led by president 
Charlie Atkins, and 
coordinator, Chris 
Webb, the 31 member 
group will participate in 
and direct a number of 
activities throughout 
the year. 

There are two 
divisions of PAC: The 
admissions council and 
the development 
council. Tim Hibbs is 
the chairman of 
admissions and 
Michelle Witt is 

secretary. Chairman of 
Development is Missy 
Morne and Chris 
Fahringer is secretary. 
The persons who will be 
assisting these leaders 
in projects are Karen 
Armstrong, Bev Burton, 
Kim Cady, Hilarie 
Clower, Colleen Coburn, 
Jill Cornish, John 
Dupuy, Nancy Fox, 
Margaret Germann, 
Leah Godbold, 
Audrianna Grisham, 
Patty Hamilton, John 
Holm, Lisa Illing, Julie 
Jordon, Lisa King, 
Karen Klusendorf, 
Richard Lange, Paula 
Langley, David 

Lawrence, Madeline 
Montgomery, Sonya 
Sankey, Elizabeth 
Selby, Carol Stevens 
Richard Wallace, Kathy 
Woods, and Michele 

These students went 
through a selection 
process that consisted 
of submiting an 
application and being 
interviewed by Charlie 
Atkins, Jim Perkins, 
Director of 
Development, and Kay 

According to Atkins, 
PAC is in a 
"rebuilding" process. 
Dr. Webb, who began 

the organization in 1979 
with the help of Dr. 
Andrew Pate, then 
Director of Admissions, 
wants PAC to be a 

organization. ' ' Atkins 
stresses that the key 
word for the group 
is' 'involvement" and 
the primary reason for 
PAC is to develop and 
promote a better 
understanding between 
the student body and the 
faculty and 

PAC will be tending 
benches at the 
Louisiana State Fair 
which begins Friday, 

October 22. Members 
will be passing out 
information to fairgoers 
concerning Centenary 
College. The group will 
also be involved with 
the annual Great 
Fund, and for the first 
time, the PAC members 
will be ushering at 
Centenary basketball 
games. Later in the 
year, PAC will assist in 
the Centenary Quiz 
Bowl held for high 
school students. 

Centenary Freshman 
Crowned Queen 

Freshman Susan Robertson, Queen of the Cotton Festival in ViHe 
Platte, reigns with the king, Gov. David Treen. Susan won the 
contest last weekend from a field of 24 contestants. 

Centenary College 
freshman Susan 
Robertson shared the 
stage with Gov. David 
Treen Saturday, Oct. 9, 
when she was crowned 
Queen Cotton XXIX in 
Ville Plate. Gov. Treen 
was crowned King of the 
two-day Cotton 
Festival, now in its 29th 

"It was all just like a 
fairytale," said the 
bubbly brunette. "I 
couldn't believe it was 
all happening. I really 
never expected to win, 
especially after I got 
there and saw all those 
pretty girls." 

Susan, a former 
Bossier City resident, is 
the daughter of the Rev. 
and Mrs. Larry D. 
Robertson of Crowley. 
She attended Airline 
High School and 
graduated from 
Crowley High School 
before entering 
Centenary this fall. 

A member of the 
Centenary College 

State Fair 
Opens Tomorrow 

Choir, Susan will be 
making the group's 1983 
summer concert tour 
behind the Bamboo 
Curtain to Japan and 
the People's Republic of 
China. At Sunday 
morning's brunch, Gov. 
Treen congratulated 
Susan as an outstanding 
representative for 
Louisiana in the Orient. 

"Gov. Treen was 
really cool," Susan said. 
"And he's a great 
dancer — I only stepped 
on his foot once," she 
said with a smile. 

The five-foot, brown- 
haired, brown-eyed 
beauty is a business 
major at Centenary and 
the brother of Curtis 
Robertson, a junior at 
Centenary and also a 
member of the Choir. 

Queen Susan will have 
a busy freshman year 
visiting other festivals 
and fairs, highlighted 
by Washington Mardi 
Gras when she will 
share the spotlight with 
Gov. Treen again. 

Shreveport, LA — The 
77th edition of the 
Louisiana State Fair, the 
Pelican State's largest 
single annual attraction, 
will open this Friday for 
a gala 10-day run that 
will conclude on Sunday, 
Oct. 31. 

This year's ex- 
travaganza will feature 
keen competition in the 
livestock and 
agricultural departmen- 
agricultural departments, 
for both juniors and 
adults, top-notch enter- 
tainment on the 
"Celebrity Stage," the 
Fair's free grandstand 
show, scores of 
educational commercial 
exhibits, varied shows 
on The Port's stage, and 
the championship finals 
rodeo of the Louisiana 
Rodeo Cowboys 

On the colorful mid- 
way will be the Royal 
American Shows with its 
exciting rides and other 

For the junior 
livestock exhibitors, 
their big day will be 
Tuesday, Oct. 26, when 
the annual junior 
livestock sale is held. 

Other competition will 
include arts and crafts, 
home economics, home 
and family arts, senior 
citizens and poultry. 

Headliners on the 
"Celebrity Stage" will 
be the Wright Brothers, 
Oct. 22, 23 and 24; The 
Truth or Consequences 
Road Show, Oct. 25 and 
26, Gospel Galore, An- 
drus, Blackwood & Co., 
featuring very special 
guest Pat Boone, Oct. 27 
and 28, and Doug Ker- 
shaw, Oct. 29, 30 and 31. 
Backup acts will include 
Jay Cochrane, high wire 
artist, and the famed 
Budweiser Clydesdales. 

The LRCA rodeo is set 
for Hirsch Coliseum, 
Oct. 29-30, and the U.S. 
Army's Golden Knights 
will demonstrate 
precision parachuting 
Oct. 29, 30, and 31. 

Lambert Assigned 
Additional Tasks 

President Webb has 
nom inated John 
Lambert to head up a 
task force of twelve 
people to look at 
enrollment trends. He 
will be looking at these 
trends to help keep 
enrollment steady at 
Centenary. He will be 
keeping cost, core 
credit courses, and 
many other things in 
mind while reviewing 
the enrollment trends at 
the college. 

Lambert has also 
been chosen as 
chairman of the State 

Relations Committee. 
This committee deals 
with financial aid in 
Louisiana. Lambert will 
be dealing directly with 
the governor of the 
state. This contact 
should give Centenary 
some direct input in the 
decisions made about 
financial aid in

Letters To the Editors: Core Curriculum 

To the Editors 
The Conglomerate 

In last week's 
Conglomerate in an 
article on the proposed 
changes in curricular 
requirements there was 
a statement that most of 
the faculty in 
attendance at the open 
meeting of the 
Educational Policy 
Committee "refused to 
accept'' the student 
input there. Indeed, it 
was exactly because we 
were listening to the 
students' concerns that 
we felt compelled to 
answer with our 
opinions; since when is 
an open meeting 
restricted to one point of 
view and rebuttal 
necessarily a refusal to 
weight the validity of 
another idea? This 
letter is in the spirit of 
open dialogue. 

First of all, it must be 
understood that the 
focus of the concerns 
expressed at the first 
meeting was on the few 

majors which require as 
many as 42 semester 
hours, accounting for 
example. I did not mean 
to imply it was "simply 
too bad" if a student in 
one of these majors ran 
over the maximum 45 
hrs. allowed in a major 
by taking too many 
courses not required 
and thereby having to 
take hours over 124 to 
compensate for the 
overload. I merely said 
that it was a problem, 
often due to advising or 
the student's failure to 
acquaint himself with 
college regulations (the 
necessity to do so being 
requisite in any college) 
or he must suffer the 
consequences. In fact, 
we try to head off such 
problems by requiring a 
degree plan at the end of 
the first Junior 
semester. I was stating 
facts, not being 

Furthermore, no 
college can decide what 
it considers best for all 
students on the basis of

To correct another 
misstatement, Drs . 
Gottlob and Penuel did 
not "speak at length" 
about the foreign 
language requirement, 
rather spoke in favor of 
the proposal as a whole. 
Only I, in the second 
meeting, spoke to my 
department's belief and 
our government's 
expressed opinion 
regarding the 
practicality of foreign 
language education in 
the face of our 
international illiteracy 
in comparison with 
other major powers. 

Now, let s analyze 
some other statements: 

(1) "Students can get 
behind very easily if 
they change their 
major." Changing a 
major might put the 
student behind in major 
requirements, but not in 
core requirements 
which are requisite for 
any major. There is 
obviously no unfairness 
here. Indeed, since 
major requirements 

• can also be used to 
satisfy core 
requirements, it is 
conceivable that a 
student might actually 
satisfy* > more core 
requirements by a 
change of major. 

(2) "Many (students) 
feel that they will not be 
adequately prepared for 
their chosen profession 
if they do not have a 
certain amount of 
freedom in course 
selection." Again, this 

is a matter of major, not 
core requirements. 
Departments set major 
requirements and if 
they are not adequately 
preparing the student 
the concern must be 
addressed to them. 
Since most majors 
require 30-36 hours, the 
student is allowed 9-15 
hours of electives in his 
major to prepare him 

(3)" This proposal 
will hinder our transfer 
students recruitment. 
With the increased 
requirements, even few 
(sic) hours will transfer 
in... The increase of lost 
hours may very well 
make the transfer not 
worthwhile and the 
student will stay away." 

Hours do not transfer 
to Centenary according 
to either core W major 
requirements ; they 
transfer or they do not, 
according to grade (C or 
above only) and, 
genera lly s peaki ng , 
whether we have an 
equivalent course of 
study (agriculture or 
secretarial studies, for 
example, do not 

Although it is true 
that colleges vary in 
their approach to 
requirements, it might 
be well, with all the 
above in mind, to 
compare the proposed 

requirements (before 
the / mark) with the 
mini mums in the 
College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences at LSU- 


Baton Rouge (BA after 
the ' ; BS in 
parentheses), where 128 
hours are required for 

I. Natural Sciences: 
16 /14 (14 or 48 if in 
sciences) Centenary is 
specifically requiring 6 
hours of math, but is 
this illogical when we 
consider how much 
earlier and more 
proficient the student 
abroad is in Math. ^ 

II. Social Science: av 
History: 6/6 (6) b. 
Other: 9/9 (9) Total 
14V 8 15 (15 or 48 if in 
Social Sci.) 

Humanities: a. 
Foreign Languages: 
6/16 (13) ; b&c: 18 /23 
(6); English (from 
gen.: 9/9 (9) 
reauirements) ; Totals: 
33 / 48 if major (28) 

Would an LSU student 
transfer? The disparity 
here is not so great that 
the student will "stay 

While it is true that 
quantity does not make 
quality, quantity with 
quality could give us the 
reputation as one of the 

first-rate liberal arts 
colleges. Do you really 
want a degree from a 
college which attracts 
students because they 
won't have to take 
courses they are 
predisposed to believe 
are not relevant, useful, 
or "popular"?

Dear Editors: 

I am writing to 
correct an error in the 
October 14 issue. In his 
article about the debate 
on the proposed core 
curriculum, J. Alan 
Irvine states that 
"although no one came 
out against the proposed 
foreign language 
requirement, both Drs. 
Gottlob and Pennuel 
(SIC) spoke at length in 
favor of it." Dr. Penuel 
did not mention the 
foreign language 
requirement at all in his 
remarks, while I spoke 
at length in favor of the 
proposal as a whole, 
with special reference 
to the proposed Gen. 

Ed. 101-102 and to ir 
expanded history and 
science requirements,! 
as well as the foreigjl 
language requirement! 

This erroneous! 
reporting gives a false; 
impression of Drl 
Penuel and me as over| 
sensitive and narrowlj 
concerned only with our 
own areas of study. Ail 
liberally educated 
humanists, we felt 
called upon to defewj

Dear Mom & Dad, 

I realize that I haven't 
written since the 
semester began, so I 
can understand the 
private detective you 
sent to check up on me, 
but don't you think the 
funeral wreath and 
sympathy card you sent 
my roommate were a 
little much. At any rate, 
you should've known 
how I was. After all, 
every newspaper in the 
state carried the story 
of the incident at the 
hotel last week. (How 
was I supposed to know 
she was the mayor's 

Classes are going 
much better than last 
year. Why, even my 
chemistry teacher 
seems to have forgiven 
that "accident" in the 
lab last year. Of course, 
they did have to replace 
the greenhouse... I have 
a couple of evening 
classes for a change, 
which I find quite 
refreshing. I sometimes 

even wake up in time for 

The weather's finally 
cooled down at long last, 
so I no longer need my 
ceiling fan. So I let the 
freshman who had been 
operating it go back to 
attending classes, 
except when my room 
needs cleaning. It's all 
part of my new civic 
involvement. I'm 
helping out in the Adopt- 
A-Freshman program. 

There's been a lot of 
talk on campus about 
the Whole Core 
Controversy (often 
abbreviated for easy 
reference: ). I'm not 
sure where I stand on 
the Wh. Ore 
Controversy. It appears 
to me that the faculty 
firmly believes that the 
students are too 
scatterbrained to enroll 
in the right courses. Yet 
after having the 
foresight to take four 
semesters of 
basketweaving I'm not 
so sure I agree. After 
all, now I've got a good 

solid skill to fall back 
upon. The students also 
have a point that it's 
hideously immoral to i 
force anybody to learn 
anything. I know unci* 
Jerry would agree with 
this point, if only he 
could read. 

Speaking of uncle 
Jerry, how is he doing- 
Does he still preach ^ 
that TV show of his J \ 
Love Thy Neighbor, But 
Don't Get Caught? Is 1 
true that Sis is about to 
make me an unck W' 
the fifth time? Wonder 
if she'll ever g* 1 

I heard from GraH 
last week. She's going

Beyond Treasure 

Jsiami: the Complete 
Stevenson. Everyone 
knows that Robert Louis 

Stevenson wrote some 
of the finest and most 
enjoyable adventure 
stories in our language. 
But few modern readers 
realize that Stevenson's 
respected him as a 
psychologicl novelist, 
and elegant essayist, 
and subtle moralist. 
Moving from the 
effervescence of 

'Treasure Island to the 

ambiguities of the Ehb 
Tide, Dr. David H. 
Jackson will present a 
full picture of the 
remarkable writer. 

American Military 
History. Capt. Foster 
will cover the U.S. at 
war from the colonial 
beginning, to the 
present; the inter- 
relationship of political, 
economic, social, and 
military factors with 
special emphasis on the 
evolution of the Army as

civilian authority 
including the theory and

Physical Fitness for 
Daily Living: Theory & 
Practice. Dr. David L. 
Bedard will conduct this

new Human 
Laboratory in Haynes, 
Gymnasium. He will 
explore aerobic training 
for circularespiratory 

development of a 
personal exercise 
prescription ; 
flexibility; the 
relationship of exercise 
and weight control; and 
stress and exercise. The 
paramount application 
objective for the student 
will be to utilize the 
personal exercise 
prescription and thus 
participate in an 
exercise program. The 
normal class period will 
be two hours theory and 
one hour of exercise. 

The Psychology of 
Country and Western 
Music. This course will 
look at the dynamics of 
Country and Western 
Music, its history, its 
appeal, how it speaks to 
the central issues of 
middle-America, its use 
of colloquial yet 
trenchant lyrics, its use 
as an ego-defense 
mechanism, and its 
uses as a barometer of 
liberal / conservative 
swings in the cultural 
Zeitgeist of the country. 
Students will become 
familiar with a wide 
variety of C&W songs 
and will analyze a 
number in terms of 
content and philosophy. 
Dr. Mark Dulle will 
teach the course. 

Natural History of 
Common Louisiana 
Animals. Many people 
know little about the 
animals they see around 
them. This course, to be 
taught by ■ Dr. Beth 
Leuck, is designed to 
correct that deficiency 
by teaching students 
basic biology facts 
about common animals. 
The course will start 
with insects and work 
up through fish, 
amphibians , reptiles , 
birds and mammals. 
Emphasis will be placed 
on learning the habitats, 
food habits, and 
identification of 
representative animals. 
Students will work with 
the Biology Dept. 
museum collection and 
will go out into the field 
on occasion (weather 
permitting). A previous 
college course in 
biology is not a 
prerequisite, but a 
knowledge of basic 
biological terminology 
will be helpful. 

Food Botany. Dr. Ed 
Leuck will teach this 
course which is 
intended to acquaint the 
student with those 
plants consumed by 
humans as food or 
flavoring. Discussion 
will normally include 
something about a food 
plant's origin, 
distribution, nutrition, 
preparation, cultivation 
and botany. Some prior 
knowledge of botany is 
useful but not essential 
if the student is willing 
to pick up some 
background knowledge 
quickly. There will be a 
$10 lab fee for 
purchasing food plant 
samples (to be

By spring of 1978, 
insights had long 
disappeared, and in an 
attempt to establish 
another literary 
Magazine, Dr. Michael 


i as a 

i the 


r of 
m at 

Hall's Creative Writing 
class published Icarus. 
Among its submissions 
were avant-garde 
poetry and difficult 
material that was well- 
suited for criticism and 
discussion. Like 
Insights, Icarus was a 
collection of pieces 
submitted by a small 

During the next year, 
there was only a weak 
attempt to continue 
Icarus. Dr. Hall was on 
sabbatical, and many 
people who had been 
involved with Icarus 
had since graduated. As 
there was only one 
person previously 
associated with the 
magazine who was 
interested in keeping it 
going, Icarus folded 
after the one issue. 

Fall of 1979 marked 
the beginning of Alan 
Irvine's freshman year. 
Irvine, who is working 
for the fourth year as 
editor of Pegasus, had 
discovered that 
Centenary had a 
literary magazine when 
he came up for high 
school weekend the year 
before. After working 
on his Baton Rouge high 
school's literary 
magazine for three 
years, Irvine felt he was 
qualified to work 
towards establishing a 
successful magazine 

here at Centenary. He 
and a small, fairly 
unorganized staff 
collected submissions- 
many from one of Dr. 
Hall's Creative Writing 
class, and some from 
people who were simply 
interested in 
contributing to the 
magazine. Out of the 
basic anarchy of the 
group came the first 
issue of Pegasus in the 
spring of 1980-a 
publication that was no 
longer confined to a 
small group, but was 
slowly becoming more 
the product of the 

By the second issue of 
Pegasus (fall of 1980), 
Irvine was recognized 
as the publication's 
editor. The 
Committee deemed 
Pegasus an official 
campus media, which 
meant that instead of 
being sold as the first 
issue had been, the 
magazine was funded 
by the SGA. It was at 
this point that the staff 
decided to put out an 
issue each semester. 
With each consecutive 
issue, the magazine has 
become more and more 
organized. The 
editorship is now an 
official position, and the 
publication has its own

In order to insure a 
quality magazine, 
Irvine proposed a 
budget this year of 
$2,540 to pay for both the 
fall 1982 and spring 1983 
issues of the magazine. 
But the SGA cut this-by 
more than 50 percent-to 
$1,200. The SGA feels 
that there only needs to 
be one issue of Pegasus 
annually, and that the 
publication should 
appear only in the 
spring of each year. 

Irvine and the 
Pegasus staff 
vehemently disagree 
with the SGA's 
sentiments. As the 
youngest media on the 
campus, people aren't 
as familiar with it as 
they are with the more 
established ones like 
KSCL, Yoncopin, and 
the Conglomerate. As 
familiarity has grown, 
however, so has the pool 
of contributors. Each 
issues brings with it 
more quality 
artwork , photography , 
poetry, and prose. 
Should the number of 
issues be cut to one each 
spring, as proposed by 
the SGA, the Pegasus 
staff anticipates a loss 

of momentum and a 
decrease in the current 
large numbers of 
contributors. The 
magazine would lose 
important contacts-- 
with staff members, 
with those who now 
make submissions 
regularly, and with the 
professionals who, 
because of their 
familiarity with the 
magazine's technical 
aspects, are invaluable 

In response to the cuts 
made by the SGA, 
Irvine plans to publish 
"as usual" this 
semester, so as to 
capitalize on the 
enlarging pool of quality 
contributions. Again, 
the combined Pegasus 
staff intends to gear the 
magazine towards the 
Centenary community 
as a whole-to publish 
things by and for a wide 
variety of people. The 
publication will 
continue to be a 
showcase of creative 
work (like general- 
interest poetry and light 
stories as well as 
ponderable and avant 
garde material) as 
opposed to a "literary 
magazine" in the usual

sense of the term. SGA 
president Greg 
Blackman has implied 
that if there is a good 
turnout of submissions 
for the upcoming issue, 
there will be a 
possibility of increasing 
the Pegasus fund. 

Irvine sees transition 
as the main problem in 
the magazine's future 
(assuming it has one). 
Especially in the event 
that there isn't a spring 
issue, he feels it is 
imperative to start 
training a potential new 
editor now, as he and 
several of the 
experienced staff 
members will graduate 
next May. Irvine 
predicts that if Pegasus 
can survive the 
transition to a new 
editor, and hold on to or 
increase current 
production levels, the 
magazine will 
experience few other

Congratulations are 
extended to Lisa 
Chaisson, Cara Derrick,

call your dad! And hey, 
Stacy, have you lost all 
the touch in those hands 
of yours? 

We would like to 
extend a special thanks 
to two big men for their 
time and coaching 
expertise in flag 
football. They are 
Buffalo Don Ross and 
one shy retiring 
individual who asked 
not to be cited for his 
selfless contributions. 
He did however, want to 
see his name in print! 

Seriously, thanks for 
your help and support — 
it was rough, but lots of

everywhere else). 

Congrats, first, to 
Lisa Chaisson, one of

Fall Ball was really 
nice as was Fight Night. 
Does the fact that 
cyanide is now found in

have anything to do with 
the fact that everyone is

Soccer Winning Streak Ends at Ten jackson named all conference 

by Soccer Fan 

The Gent soccer 
jgam's winning streak 
^ ten games was ended 
^ the sixth ranked 
team in the region- 
northeast Louisiana 
State University. The 
Gents entered the 
Bayou Classic Soccer 
Tournament with an 
unblemished 9-0 record. 
The first game, they 
faced Nicholls State 
•(^University. The Gents 
wasted no time scoring 
as Matt Cardillo 
assisted Scott Davidson 
1:14 into the game-- the 
Gents led 1-0. The Gents 
did not score again until 





St. Phard assisted 
Amaar Anbouba on his 
ninth goal of the season. 
Minutes later Scott 
Davidson kicked a goal 
that St. Phard collected. 
St. Phard then 
outsprinted the defense 
of Nicholls and scored to 
put the Gents ahead 3-0, 
Surpise, surprise, the 
fourth and final goal of 
the game was scored by 
second string goalie 
Gene Oakes. The Gents 
won the game 4-0. 

On Saturday the 
Gents faced the 
Northeast team for the 
championship of the 
Bayou Classic Soccer 
Tournament. The Gents 
played valiantly as 

goalkeeper Bo 
Mangum's performance 
eared him tournament 
defense Most Valuable 
Player, and a slim 
chance a shot at All- 
American honors. The 
Gents were tied at the 
half 0-0. It was not until 
25 minutes were left in 
the game that N.L.U. 
finally score. N.L.U was 
awarded a penalty kick 
minutes later because 
of a handball by the 
Gents, and the score 
became 0-2, N.L.U. 
N.L.U. scored two more 
goals before the final 
whistle and the Gents 
lost 0-4. 

The Gents set the 
record in the south this 

year for the longest 
winning streak, 10 in a 
row. They are not 
nationally ranked, but 
they are nationally 
known. The Gents will 
be traveling to Monroe 
Friday to face this same 
N.L.U. team at 7:00 
p.m. All fans are asked 
to come support the 
Gents because they can 
beat this team. This 
Sunday at 2:00 p.m. 
here against Lamar 
University the Gents 
will play their 
Homecoming game-be 
there. The Gent kickers 
set the 1982 record for 
consecutive victories in 
the south. We are proud 
of you Gents.

Monday Night At The Fights 

It wasn't Monday 
night football, it wasn't 
the World Series. It was 
theOctoberfestFights in 
the gym. Forty-six of 
Centenary's brave (?) 
young men put on the 
gloves and had their 
chance at being Rocky 
for a brief moment of 
glory. The matches took 
place in Haynes Gym, 
and were sponsored by 
Cline Dorm. Each 
match consisted of 
three one-minute 
rounds, with a 45-second 
break between each 
round. The three 
judges, Drew Collins, 
Scott Davidson, and 
Paul McDowell, then 
chose the winner of 
each round, the 
competitor with the 
most votes was 
declared the winner. 
Referees for the night's 
festivities were Wayne 
Rathbun and Les Turk. 
The lovely round-girls 
were Julie Jordan, 
Rebecca McCart, and 
Carole Powell. 

Both of these fighters 
hit more of the air than 
each other. Donnie 
didn't even mess his 
hair up. 

Match 6 

Curtis Westerfield v. 
Todd Anders (winner) 
These two guys really 
went for it. Todd's nose 
took a shot and bled, as a 
result Curtis will be 
doing caf duty for a 

Match 11 

Monty Smith (winner) 
v. Phil Hornaday 
These guys really 
started swinging. Phil 
looked a little worried 
when he realized he was 
using his hands on a 
body rather than a 

but he landed some good 
punches. Morton didn't 
think they fought that 
way in the states and 
lost by a T.K.O. 

Match 1 

Del ton Abrams v. David 
Watkins (winner) 
A brief study break for 
Delton, this was a polite 
match that was 
interupted by a 
collapsing floor. 

Match 2 

Bob Thomas (winner) 
v. Steve Watson 
An evenly matched 
fight in which the 
opponents exchanged 
several good blows. It 
lasted too long for 
Micky however. 

Match 7 

Don Barnes (winner) v. 
Matt Jaycocks 
Matt would punch Don 
and then play ring 
around the ref. Don got 
mad at this ploy and at 
one point started to 
punch the ref instead of 

Match 8 

Randall Gonzales 
(winner) v. Tony Leo 
Randall had a longer 
reach than Tony, so 
Tony just closed his 
eyes and let his nose 

Match 9 

Robert Bennett v. 
Chuck Baker (winner) 
Robert couldn't decide 
whether he wanted to be 
inside the ring or ouside 
of it. So he fell down 
instead. Chuck thought 
he was on Saturday 
night wrestling. 

Match 12 

Todd Jerrell v. Kenny 
Gele' (winner) 
These guys looked like 
they were in a street 

Match 18 

Frank Halk (winner) v. 
Dan Ducan 

Dan was really up for 
this fight, Frank was his 
usual calm self. The 
fighters had to be 
separated frequently, 
and Frank almost 
showed some 
expression when Dan's 
nose started to bleed 

Match 13 

Kris Erickson v. John 
Duprey (winner) 
This was an exciting 
fight. John threw more 
backhands at Kris than 
punches. Marci just 
turned three shades of 

Match 14 

Jimmy Rodgers 
(winner) v. David 

David tried to be a piece 
of tapestry, he kept 
weaving in and out of 
the ropes. They went 
into a tackling session, 
before David lost a 
contact lens (or was it 
Don O'Byrne's) and the 
fight had to be stopped. 

Match 3 

Greg Blackmail 
(winner) v. Steve 

entertainment was 
provided by Greg as he 
did his rendition of 
Gypsy Rose Lee. These 
fighters looked more 
like two wet noodles 
running a marathon. 
Greg did manage to 
bloody Steve's nose. 

Match 4 

Matt Robinson (winner) 
v. Brad Lyon 
This was a rather one- 
sided match as Matt 
took Brad "to the 
ropes" figuratively 

Match 5 

Robert Robichaux v. 
Donnie Adams (winner) 

Intermission Wrestling 
Larry McCammon v. 
Mark Moates (winner) 
Larry and Mark WERE 
on Saturday night 
wrestling, but neither 
contestant managed to 
throw the other out of 
the ring. 

Intermission Kung-Fu 

Mark Pealer v. Jim 
Moore (winner) 
This was an interesting 
demonstration, but 
unfortunately no one 
observing it (including 
the judges) knew what 
was supposed to be 

Match 15 

Tim Young (winner) v. 
Scott Yudin 

Scott's original 
opponent didn't show so 
Tim gracously stepped 
in to give Scott the 
change to prove how 
strong he really is. This 
was a match between 
two frat brothers, but 
that didn't stop them 
from trying to kill each 

Match 10 

Dan Mann v. Michael 
Holt (winner) 
Dan played ring around 
the ref, and Michael got 
carried away and 
popped the ref instead of 
Dan. After match 
Michael beamed up, 
(thank you Scotty). 

Match 16 

David Vroonland v. 
Mathew Tines (winner) 
David and Mathew 
decided that if the guys 
before them could hit 
hard then so could they, 
and it turned out to be a 
good fight. 

David didn't, especially 
at the end of the third 
round when he was 
seeing stars. 

Match 20 

Ron Evans v. Bob 
Everett (winner) 
Two more frat brothers 
went at it (who didn't 
show up this time?) The 
Battle of the Stumps 
didn't last very long 
after Bob broke Ron's 
nose (and put Margo 
into false labor). That's 
what happens when you 
put a soccer player in 
the ring with a Golden 
Gloves boxer. 

Cross Country 

The Centenary cross country team competed 
the L.S.U. Invitational this past weeken 
Jentenary came in fifth overall. Individual tinj 
nd places are as follows : 

Match 19 

Mike Garner (winner) 
v. David McGee 
Two close friends, and 
frat brothers went at it 
because Mike's 
opponent backed out at 
the last minute. Mike 
looked like he knew 
what he was doing, 

Match 21 

Frank Jackson 
(winner) v. Mark Ades 
Two really big guys, a 
good fight, right? Mark 
spent more time 
doubled over than he did 
swinging. Frank was 
4 'awesome."

TKE Squeezes by Sigs 

By Joe Fan 

Tuesday, October 19, 
the stage was set for the 
battle between two 
prominent fraternities 
on the Centenary cam- 
pus: Tau Kappa Epsilon 
and Kappa Sigma. The 
winner of this game 
would prove who was the 
best of the two teams. 
Despite all the talk that 
TKE I did not stand a 
chance against the "big 
men" on campus, they 
did prevail. This motley 
groups of guys proved 
that diversity overcomes 

In the game, TKE was 
the first to score, taking 
the opening kick-off and 
driving down the field to 
pay dirt. The extra point 
was unsuccessful, but 
TKE still posted a 6-0 
lead. Kappa Sigma then 
received the kick-off 
only to have it taken 
away a few plays later 
by an interception. 
Later, Kappa Sig drove 
the ball down the field 
aided by their explosive 
running game, but their 
futile attempt to score 
was repelled by Kris 
Erickson's timely inter- 


Match 17 

Morton Carlson v. 
Junior Biles (winner) 
Junior looked like a 
Mexican jumping bean, 

ception. With little time 
on the clock, TKE has 
possession of the ball 
again. They connected 
on a long bomb from 
Quarterback Mike Gar- 
ner to Frank Halk to put 
them in scoring distance 
with 25 seconds 
remaining until half- 
time. However, time ex- 
pired and TKE was not 
able to capitalize. 

In the second half, 
Kappa Sig received the 
kick-off. It appeared that 
Scotty Caroom was 
going to run it all the 
way back, but David 
Magee had other ideas. 
He ripped off Scotty's 
flag just past mid-field. 
Kappa Sig scored a few 
plays later when 
Caroom 's lob pass con- 
nected to Jimmy 
Disbrow. The extra point 
attempt was unsuc- 
cessful and the game 
was knotted at 6-6. Both 
teams scored again, but 
Kappa Sig was leading 
13-12 with less than two 
minutes in the game. In 
just a minute and 10 
seconds, TKE drove 
|engtl^f^^field wr 

great arial display. The 
extra pont was suc- 
cessful and TKE led 19- 
13. On the following kick- 
off, TKE scored a safety 
on Kappa Sig to extend 
their lead 21-13 with 24 
seconds remaining in the 
game. Kappa Sig then 
intercepted the ball for a 
score and an extra point 
to pull within one point 
with 16 seconds 
remaining. An on-side 
kick by the Sigs was un- 
succcessful and TKE 

pionship game again

will be played Monda

Students take pri de in College j 

In an interview with 
The Conglomerate, 
Dick Anders, Dean of 
Students, expressed his 
views on how the 
semester is going so far. 

He said that he is 
"real pleased with the 
residence halls' staff 
and the dorm councils." 
He said that he is 
pleased with the 
different ideas, such as 
the Monday Night fights 
to involve students. 

He mentioned that at 
the beginning of the 
semester there were 
some problems with 
minor violations 
involving visitation, 
"but we set our 
standards early, and 
they were cleared up." 
He said that the 
administration is not 
totally satisfied, but 

they are pleased. 

The major problem 
Anders sees witn 
students this semester 
is students moving off 
campus without getting 
things cleared up with 
the college. "This is 
taking up a lot of time of 
the students and 

Anders said. The 
problem has become out 
of proportion this 
semester. Centenary 
ahs a very spelled-out 
policy regarding 
housing. He said there 
are two reasons the 
college has an on- 
campus living policy. 
One, the dorm rooms 
are real estate. When 
the college doesn't rent 
them, they lose money. 

Two, living in a dorm is 
"an important part of 
growth in a liberal arts 
education. You learn 

how to deal with a 

Anders feels that the 
real problem is the 
students do not become 
familiar with the 
policies of the college. 
He says, "the Student 
Handbook should be 
used as a road map to 
life at Centenary." The 
college has set up a 
committee to try and 
deal with these 
problems, and they are 
willing, "but they do 
intend to comply with 
the policies." Anders 
said that if anyone is 
planning to move off 
campus next semester, 
they should come talk to 

him or Joy Jeffers. 
Arrangements must be 
made before 
registration, and no 
exceptions will be made 
to the rule. 

On Student Life, Dean 
Anders commended 
Kathy Turner for doing 
a great job with student 
activities and for 
providing such a wide 
variety of them for 

"I'm really upbeat 
about the attitude of 
SGA," Anders said. 
"They have made so 
many improvement in 
the SUB, and Fall Ball 
was great!" 

As far as security 
goes, Anders said that 
most of the thefts that 

have been made were in 
students' rooms who did 

not have their doors 
locked or had their keys 
hidden in an obvious 
place. He urged 
students to read the 
security booklet, and 
take precautions with 
valuables. He is pleased 

with the improvements 
on the parking lots and 
lighting on campus. 

Anders said he sees 
"a lot of student 
involvement this 
semester." He hopes it 
will continue. 

In closing, he said, 
"Students are taking a 
lot more pride in the 
college this semester, 
and the college 
certainly has pride in 
the students."

Now is time From the Wizards Kettle 

for involvement 

Editors' Note! 

The following is a 
reprint of an editorial 
appearing in the 
October 29, 1981 issue of 
The Conglomerate. 

This week marks the 
half-way point of the fall 
semester. Mid-terms are 
over, that stranger in 
your room has become 
your friend, and 
everyone has settled into 
the Centenary routine. 

Now, with finals still 
too far away to worry 
about, is the perfect time 
to look around and find 
ways to become involved 
in campus activities. 

A great way to start is 
by participation in some 
of othe campus-wide 
events offered. The SGA 
Entertainment Commit- 
tee and S A. A C. sponsor 
weekly activities such as 
movies, concerts, and 

Other activities 
offered include lectures, 
recitals, and demonstra- 
tions by various 

departments of the 
college; Leisure Lear- 
ning Courses and in- 
tramural sports. 

Most of these activities 
are supported by the 
student fees we pay each 
semester. They are 
planned and organized 
by and for students. Ad- 
mission to these events 
is free and dates and 
times are posted around 
campus and in The 
Conglomerate. All you 
have to do to be involved 
is to be there. 

Another form of cam- 
pus involvement comes 
through disagreement. 
If you feel that changes 
are needed in some 
areas or that things 
should be done differen- 
tly — voice your opinion. 
Circulate a petition, talk 
to someone in Hamilton, 
write a letter to the 
editor. Student opinions 
do matter and can have 
results — but you must 
let them be known.

By J. Alan Irvine 

Halloween is almost 
upon us. Soon, very 
soon, darkness will 
settle on the land, 
broken only by the 
gleaming, watching 
Hunter's moon, 
presiding full and bright 
in the night sky. Dark 
shadows will flit in and 
out; the world will bend 
and warp. A new reality 
will take hold — one 
unbound by the rules 
and conventions of our 
drab, everyday one. 
Death and darkness will 
no longer be solid 
boundaries, barring the 
worlds of the unreal, of 
the imagination from 
entry into reality. No 
longer chained to 
nightmares and ancient 
myths, things-that-are- 
not will burst free. At 
least, so it will appear to 
children and primitive 
people. The rest of us 
know better. 

As we grow up we 
learn that reality 
doesn't shift and 
change. That what is, is. 
That nightmares are 
only dreams; that 
myths are only stories; 
that bumps in the night 

are only caused by 
water in the pipes; that 
everything has a 
rational, scientific 
explanation. And none 
of this changes merely 
because one certain 
night of the year rolls 
around. There's nothing 
different about the night 
— an excuse for a party 
perhaps, but nothing 

We smile smugly as 
the children delight in 
suiting up, in entering 
into the exposed reality. 
They're so cute and 
innocent. They don't 
know it's all make- 
believe. But, older and 
far wiser, we do. 

We know how the 
world works. The proof 
is all there. Western 
science has laid it all 
bare and exposed the 
make-believe and 
fraud. No one in their 
right mind has ever 
seen a ghost or 
vampire. Those who 
claim to, well they're by 
definition crazy and 
ought to be locked up. In 
any event, they have no 
scientific proof, not 
even a single, simple 
experiment to back up 
their position. 

But yet, if our reality 
is so secure, so utterly 
and unchallengeable, 
why then do we avoid 
graveyards at midnight 
and long forgotten 
houses in the dark 0 Why 
do we tremble when the 
floor creaks in an empty 
attic? Why do we 
sometimes feel followed 
and watched on cold, 
autumn nights when no 
living person's around? 
Why do we sometimes 
hear the trees whisper 
in the breeze? Why are 
wo so afraid to be alone 
in the dark? 

Science knows. 
Science has all the 
answers. But the 
children still believe. 
And sometimes, even 
rational, skeptical 
people avoid 
graveyards at night. 
Just in case.

ideas about the kind of 
housing they would like 
to find atier graduation 
and the trade-offs they 
would be willing to 
accept in order to make

Students entering the 
contest are asked to 
describe in 500-1,000 
words: "What do you 
expect in terms of 
location, density, design 
and financing in 
tomorrow's homes and 
how will these affect 
your lifestyle." 

Napolitano said that 
although builders were 
already constructing 
less expensive 
townhouses, duplexes 
and walk-up 
condominiums to rduce 
housing costs, they 
welcomed new ideas and 
suggestions from 
members of the 
community who would 
be looking for

Bell Choir formed 

Do you hear what I hear? 

By Mickey Zemann 
Yes, Centenary 
College does have its 
very own hand bell 
choir. No, they weren't 
mentioned in last year's 
Yoncopin, nor were they 
included in the 
"organizations at 
Centenary ' ' pamphlet . 
But that doesn't stop 

The reason why so 
few people know of the 
bell choir's existence is 
because it is a fairly 
new organization on 
campus. Due to the 
increasing interest 
shown by students, 
faculty and 
administration, William 
Teague, Professor of 
Music, officially began 
the Centenary Hand 
Bell Choir last spring. 

The bell choir is an 
outgrowth of the sacred 
music department. 

After graduating, many 
sacred music majors 
looking for employment 
are questioned about 
their ability to handle 
the hand bells. This is 
why the hand bells can 
be taken as a class for 
one hour credit, 
although many 
members are in the 
choir for their own 
enjoyment, not for the 

Presently, there are 
thirteen "ringers" in 
the choir. Some of the 
members have had many 
years of experience, 
while others are just 
beginners. Mr. Teague 
hopes that with further 
interest and enrollment, 
next semester there 
may be two hand bell 
choirs; one for 
beginners and one for 
the more experienced 

Mr. Teague requires 
two things of all the 
ringers: They must be 
able to read music, and 
must be willing to give 
total commitment. The 
choir meets every 
Tuesday during break. 
During this time, not 
only do they practice, 
but they also develop 
into a close-knit team 
which is extremely 
important when 

According to Michele 
McMahen, "Mr. Teague 
is a good director. He's 
demanding in a good 
sort of way." Other 
choir members have 
also spoken highly of 
Mr. Teague. "When I 
first came to 
Centenary," says 
Suzanne Landry, a 
ringer for nearly twelve 
years, "I tried to join a 
bell choir at a local 

church, but it just didn't 
work out." Suzanne 
then spoke to Mr. 
Teague about a bell 
choir and was 
instrumental in the 
growth of the Centenary 

According to Suzanne, 
the bell choir's biggest 
problem is then when 
they do play, they are 
not always heard. "Last 
year when we played at 
graduation, none of the 
seniors heard us because 
we played before they 
came out. It was 
disappointing because 
we were playing for 
them and they couldn't 
hear us. " 

This summer 
Centenary will host the 
regional handbell 
convention. About 550 
ringers are expected to 
perform in the Gold 

Dome. Hopefully, this 
event will increase the 
interest in Centenary's 
bell choir and possibly 
next year, more people 
will be involved in the 


The bell choir 
performs at various 
times and places on 
campus. They have

MAT testing here 

The Miller Analogies 
Test (MAT) is 
administered at 
Centenary on Thursday 
afternoons at 4 PM This 
a 50 minute test 
consisting of 100 
analogies presented in a 
multiple choice format. 
The test is required by 
some graduate schools 
for admission and it is 
kind of fun to take. 

Dr. Bettinger 
recommends that 
applicants for graduate 
school take the test even 
if it is not formally 
required. The test is 
scored at the time of the 
administration so 
candidates know 
immediatedly how well 
they have done. If the 
score is high it can be 
used as a desirable 

supplement to the 
graduate school 
application. If the score 
is deemed not high 
enough to enhance the 
application it is simply 
not reported to the 
graduate school. 

The test i s 
administered at cost to 
students enrolled full 
time at Centenary.

Intramurals: Buf aloes win 

The Buffaloes 
continued their winning 
ways by soundly 
thrashing TKE 38-12 on 
route to the intramural 
football championship. 
The awesome Buffalo 
defense scored first on 
an interception. From 
there the team never 
looked back. The 
Buffaloes led 19-0 at the 
half, and it was 33-0 
before the TKE's got 
their first score well 
into the second half. 
Each team scored one 
more time. The 
Buffaloes ended the 
season with a perfect 7-0 

Intramural staff members are some of the biggest fans.

Mud doesn't 
dampen spirits 

By David Nelson 

On Thursday, October 
21 a few hearty souls 
witnessed a football 
game not soon to be 
forgotten. It was the 
championship game for 
women's intramural 
football. The game 
between Sexton and the 
Bruisers was a superb 
game which went into 
overtime and ended with 
a last minute touchdown 
for the Bruisers. 

The game was a 
defensive battle, with 
the exception of a few 
offensive spurts by both 
teams. The Bruisers 

were plagued by 
penalties and the rain 
hampered the running 
games of both teams. 
Sexton had two 
outstanding catched by 
Lori Simmons and 
Suzanne Landry 

The Bruisers scored 
on a trick play on fourth 
down during overtime. 
Quarterback Edwina 
Walker pitched out to 
Penny Potter who 
connected on a' 'look what 
I found" pass to Janis 
Parnell. The Bruisers 
came out on top to take 
the championship. 

Ouch! Ron Letcher takes a tumble for his

Kickers finish 

By Soccer Fan 
The Gents Kickers 
played their last games 
of the regular season 
this past weekend; a 1-6 
loss to Northeast, La., 
at Northeast; and a 3-1 
win against Lamar 
Univeristy at home. 

The Gents traveled to 
Monroe Friday night to 
play NLU. The Gents 
lost their second game 
of the season 1-6. Sam 
St. Phard scored the 
Gents' lone goal. The 
few bright spots for 
Centenary were Matt 
Cardillo, Keith 
McPherson, Doug 
Crone, Charlie Warren, 
and Jack Conner. 
Carsillo and McPherson 
showed a lot of promise 
for the future. Should 
Coach Enos Russell 
have a good recruiting 
year, the Gents could be 
a factor in next fall's 
regional rankings. 

On Sunday the Gents 

came home and beat 
Lamar University 3-1. 
Jay Poss and Sam St. 

Phard scored the goals. 
Jeff Buseick played a 
terrific game. Overall, 
though, the Gents had 
their worst day of the 
year. That's okay 

though, because the 

Gents finished their 
regular season with an 
11_2 win— loss record. 
The Gents in one year 
turned their record 
around from 3-12 last 
year to 11-2; the most 
improved record of any 
college in the nation. 

In two weeks the 
Gents will travel to 
Abilene, Texas for the 
TAAC soccer 
tournament. The Gents 

will play either Hardon- 
Simmons or Houston 
Baptist the 10th and 6th 
ranked team in the mid- 
west respectively. The 
Gents established the 
longest winning streak 
in the south this year by 
winning their first ten 
games. The Gents are 
also the defending East 

Texas Shoot-Out 
Champions as well as 
the Bayou Classic 
runner-up. The team is 
comprised mainly of 
freshmen and 
sophomores. Next year, 
the Gents will be 
playing regionally and 
nationally ranked 
teams. It is imperative 
that the Gents have a 
good recruiting year in 

the off-season if they 
wish to be more 
competitive next year. 
Congratulations Gents; 
it was a great regular 
season. The soccer 
team would like to 
thank all the fans who 
supported them this 
season. For those who 
were at NLU — thanks 

for the cheers; "We've 
got spirit, yes we do, 
we've go spirit, how 
'bout you?" 

Golfers win tourney 

On a day when former 
Centenary College Ail- 
American Hal Sutton 
became the top rookie in 
pro golf history, there 
was some glory for his 
old school's golf team. 

Centenary, training 
by seven shots going 
into the final round, 
came back for a one- 
stroke victory in the 
Razorback Invitational 
Tournament at 
Hardscrabble Country 

The Gents edged by 
host Arkansas, avoiding 
a playoff as Razorback 
Bob Sauerberg's 4-foot 
putt rimmed out on the 
final hole. Centenary 
had a three-day total of 
899 and Arkansas 
finished with 900. 

Mark Jordan and 
Souerberg came to the 
final hole together and 
faced 15-foot putts. 
Jordan got down in two, 
but Sauerberg took a 
three and the 
tournament was 

Jordan and Dan 
Trahan both shots 73's 
for Centenary Sunday 

and tied for third in the 
individual standings at 
221. Mike Miller led the< 
Gents Sunday with a 71 
and had 226 for the 
tournament; Lee Smith 
finished with 79-235; and 
Randy Wilmore had 83- 

Missouri's John 
Sherman took the 
individual title, 
finishing with a 71 
Sunday for a 212 total 
that included a course 
record five-under-par 65 
Friday. Oklahoma 
City's Will Neel finished 
second with a 217, 

including a 72 Sunday. 

Missouri, the leader 
after the Friday's first 
round, finished third 
with 904. 

Rounding out the 
team standings were 
Houston Baptist at 905, 
Oklahoma City 
University at 910, 
Wichita State at 912, 
Cameron University at

Riflery team competes 

Ready, aim, fire 

Centenary's rifle team

the past three weeks, 
once at Texas A&M, and 
once at Sam Houston

Wilhelm Scholarship 

Ground Zero: An educational alternative established 

by Bess Robinson 
Features Editor 

Homo sum; humani 
nihil a me alienum 
puto" is one phrase that 
describes Dave 
Throgmorton. Loosely, 
the expression 
translates "I am 
human; there is nothing 
about humanity that 
does not interest me." It 
was this concern for his 
fellow human beings 
that compelled the 
sociology professor to 
accept a position with 
Ground Zero, a 
nationally known peace- 
seeking organization. 

Throgmorton calls 
himself "a sociologist 
since birth." He 
received his B.A. at the 
University of Wyoming, 
and went on to earn his 
Masters and Ph.D. at 
the University of Illinois 
in Champaign-Urbana. 
He has been an 
Assistant Professor of 
Sociology at Centenary 
since fall of 1981. 

interest in nuclear 
issues was first piqued 
back in 1977, when a 
nuclear power plant 
w as being built near the 
C hampaign-Urbana 
immunity. He and his 
wife Christine Sturm 
became members of 
Prairie Alliance, a 
group whose main 
concern was that the 
Plant would turn out to 
a great risk to the 

Between 1978 and

^ansferred his concern 

r om nuclear power 
j* la nts to nuclear 
J^apons. He and 

Pristine became quite 

active in the legal 
battles that followed — 
donating money and 
organizing benefits to 
defray the magazine's 
legal expenses, and 
campaigns to 

In retrospect, his 
involvement in those 
two public-awareness 
groups convinced 
Throgmorton of the 
public's general 
ignorance of the 
seriousness of the 
potential for nuclear 
war and of the effect of 
nuclear weaponry on 
our civil liberties. He 
also sees people as not 
wanting to get involved 
in the brouhaha over 
whether or not there 
should be a nuclear 
freeze. He attributes 
this ignorance and fear 
in part to three main 
tactics designed to 
promote nuclear 
secrecy and discourage 
public debate on the 
issues of nuclear war. 

The first of these is 
that the government, by 
simply classifying it as 
"Top Secret," 
effectively removes 
much of the material 
concerning nuclear 
weapoons from the 
public realm. As a 
result of the Atomic 
Energy Act of 1954, 
anything dealing with 
nuclear technology is 
"classified" — until it is 
determined that the 
information need no 
longer be labeled so. 
Not only does this 
withholding of material 
allow the government 
an untold amount of 
power, it renders public 
awareness and debate 
on the subject virtually 
impossible since people 
can only speculate on 
what is really going on. 

Throgmorton terms this 
practice of withholding 
information that should 
be accessible for 
intelligent discussion 
"reprehensible in a 

Surveillance is 
another ta ctic 
Throgmorten cites an 
example of how nuclear 
secrecy impinges on our 
civil liberties by 
discouraging people 
from questioning 
nuclear issues. Of 
course, not every 
nuclear dissident or 
questioner can be 
watched, but there is 
plenty of documented 
evidence to prove that 
many groups and 
individuals who are 
interested in the 
mechanics of nuclear 
war ( or who are simply 
opposed to it) are 
perpetually under 
surveillance by both 
government and non- 
government agenices. 
Throgmorton contends 
that this is a gross 
encroachment on our 
freedom to gather 
together and promote a 
particular interest. 

Finally, Throgmorton 
condemns the 
irresponsible labeling of 
people who are opposed 
to official positions on 
nuclear issues as 
subversives or 
communit dupes for 
infringing on our civil 
liberties by 
discouraging people 
from speaking freely — 
by suppressing debate, 
in effect. Because they 
don't want to risk being 
branded as communist 
symphathizers or as 
puppets of other 
manipulative outside 
forces, people hesitate 
to get involved — to 
speak their minds. 

A bright star in the 
gloom of all this 

Dave Throgmorton, area representative for 
Ground Zero. 

uncertainty and 
suspicion is an 
organiation known as 
Ground Zero, for which 
Throgmorton is 
currently serving as 
area represenative. The 
group's executive 
director is Roger 
Molander, formerly a 
nuclear strategist for 
the White House's 
National Security 
Council. Basically, 
Ground Zero is a non- 
partisan organization 
which is opposed to 
nuclear weapons, and 
whose main objective is 
to make people 
painfully aware of the 
consequence of nuclear 
war -— to educate them ; 
get good, solid dialogues 
started; and to arrive at 
some kind of rational 

Ground Zero does not 
claim to have a solution 

to the disturbing 
realties of today's 
nuclear issues. The 
organization holds that 
once these issues are 
brought out of secrecy 
and into the public 
arena, and the shackles 
of irresponsible, 
unfounded labelings are 
removed from 
attempted public 
debates, people will 
come up with answers. 
This belief is recognized 
and affirmed by 
thoughtful, intelligent 
people — like Bishop 
Thomas J. Gumbleton, 
our most recent 
Convocation speaker. 
Gumbleton referred to 
Ground Zero as a very 
responsible working 
towards stopping the 
arms race and 
denouncing nuclear

Nuclear freeze favored 

Every so often an 
issue enters the public 
arena in the U.S. and 
refuses to leave until it 
has at least been moved 
closer to resolution. 
Civil Rights dialogues 
centered around such as 
issue. So did the debates 
concerning the war in 

Environmental issues 
may prove to be so 
tenacious that they 
figure prominently in 
our elections for the 
next few decades. The 
most important of these 
stubbourn issues in the 
one which Bishop 
Gumbleton addressed 
at the Convocation last 
Thursday: nuclear war. 

Those who missed 
Bishop Gumbleton's 
talk missed an eloquent 
(though low key) plea 
for nuclear 
disarmament. Perhaps 
more importantly, 
Gumbleton placed the 
responsibility for 
prevention of nuclear 
,var squarely on the 
shoulders of each and 
everyone of us. He 
argues that the 
ey ; ^tpnre of nuclear 

weapons is an implicit, 
statement of intent to 
use those weapons. He 
concluded by calling for 
a "moral about-face," 

1. e., a commitment to 
eliminate the possibility 
of nuclear war by 
eliminating the 
weapons which make 
such a war possible. 

I tend to buy into 
Bishop Gumbleton's 
argument, and heartily 
agree that we all have a 
moral responsibility to 
our fellow humans to 
work to diminish the 
potential for nuclear 
war. As an active 
member of Ground 
Zero, I vigorously 
promote that 
educational goals. 
Ground Zero basically 
works to 1.) stimulate 
public awareness of the 
threat of nuclear war, 

2. ) provide basic 
educational materials 
on nuclear war, 3.) 
promote better 
relations between the 
U.S. and the U.S.S.R. 
and 4.) create 
structures of 
international relations

which emphasize the 
necessity of peace 
rather than the 
visibility of war. 

In order to shoulder 
my portion of the moral 
imperative of nuclear 
disarmament, I have 
cast my lot with 
proponents of a nuclear 
freeze. A mutual and 
viable nuclear freeze, 
with the ultimate goal of 
eliminating nuclear 
arsenals, is both 
possible and 
mandatory. We can no 
longer afford to engage 
in a senseless arms race 
which wreaks havoc on 
the economies of 
countries sustaining a 
nuclear arsenal. In fact, 
the argument can be 
made that diverting 
resources from 
productive enterprises 
into nuclear arms 
(which we claim we will 
never use) further 
destabilizes the world 
economy and increased 
the possibility of 
nuclear aggression. If, 
or when, we have a 
nuclear war, it will be 

because it is "built into" 
the structures of our 
societies and our 
economies, not because 
someone wants to 
perpetuate such as 

Humans have never 
constructed a toy that 
they did not play with. 
Likewise, we have 
never built a weapon 
that we did not use. 
Because of this simple 
fact, it is imperative 
that we halt the testing, 
production, and 
deployment of nuclear 
weapons now. We 
cannot afford to wait 
until we reach a 
mythical "parity" with 
the U.S.S.R. A nuclear 
freeze and eventual 
reduction in nuclear 
arms cannot be 
accomplished when 
citizens demand it. The 
nuclear debate in the 
Soviet Union cannot be 
expected to resemble 
that in the U.S., so it is 
incumbent upon 
American citizens to be 
the leaders in world 
opinion condeming the 

existence of nuclear 
weapons. Leaders of 
the Soviet Union and of 
the United States have 
declared that they do 
not want a nuclear war 
and are willing to 
negotiate in order to 
prevent it. It is up to us, 
as a free people, to lead 
them beyond mere 
rhetoric to a positive 
and permanent agenda 
for peace. 

This is, obviously, a 
very personal and 
partisan approach to 
the nuclear war issues. I 
do not think for a 
moment that my views 
are universally shared. 
On the other hand, I 
encourage every 
member of the 
Centenary community 
to meet the challenge 
which Bishop 
Gumbleton has outlined 
for us and examine how 
you will shoulder your 
share of the universal 
burden of nuclear

J. Alan Irvine 

Note: The following 
are several short ideas 
rather than one longer 
column. An update from 
our intrepid explorer: 

I have quite settled in 
now and have begun my 
in-depth investigations 
of this strange and 
foreing land called 
Centenary. One 
interesting aspect of the 
natives that I have 
discovered is their 
almost fanatical 
adherance to their 
almost fanatical 
adherence to their 
religious rituals. Take 
their eating habits for 
example. Before they 
may even approach the 
food, they must present 
a small plastic talisman 
to one opf their 
priestesses to prove 
their purity and 
worthiness. The 
priestess then records 
their name to present to 
the god of harvests for 
blessing. However, if 
they do not have their 
talisman with them, 
they must submit to an 
elaborate, drawn-out 

purification ritual 
before being allowed to 
continue on. The odd 
part of this is that only 
the offender must 
undergo purification, 
but so must every other 
person waiting to eat, 
whether they have their 
talisman with them, 
they must submit to an 
elaborate, drawn-out 
purification ritual 
before being allowed to 
continue on. The odd 
part of this is that not 
only the offender must 
undergo purification, 
but so must every other 
person waiting to eat, 
whether they have their 
talisman or not! The 
priestess will allow no 
one else to enter or 
approach the food until 
the offender has been 
cleansed. I have seen 
the priestess hold up 
hordes who could've 
been peacefully eating 
for the sake of one 
unclean person. 
Apparently, the 
impurity of spirit is 
highly contagious and 
infects everyone 
coming after the 
offender and hence all 
must be cleansed. 
Many readers may no 

doubt remember last 
year's expose of the 
activities of the 
Enormously Vile and 
Insidious Legion. Well, 
recent investigations 
show that they are still 
lurking on campus, 
perhaps even a worse 
threat than ever before. 
A number of campus 
organizations like Alpha 
Chi and AKD have 
completely disappeared 
without a trace. Althea 
is seen less and less on 
campus. Everyone 
spends tremendous 
energy discussing this 
new core while truly 
important questions 
such as: what is the real 
purpose of Jeff Teter's 
home computer 
system? g 0 
unanswered. The 
alleged greenhouse atop 
Mickle Hall goes 
unfinished. Could it 
truly be a super 

station Vsballistice 
missile launch point? 

Fortunately, the 
Gloriously Organized 
Order of Delirum has 
closely monitored 
E.V.I.L's progress and 
has moved to counter- 
attack. Installation of 

their new command 
center underneath the 
Library is almost 
complete. From this 
Guidance Unit in a Yurt 
they will decisively 
counter E.V.I.L.'s 
dastardly doings. 
Meanwhile, Dr. Taylor 
has proven that he can 
still rappel down Mickle 
Hall if needed. 

Centenary's Adopt-a- 
Freshman program has 
proven to be an 
overwhelming success. 
Stated the program's 
advisor, 4 'All the 
freshman involved in 
the program have 
progressed well. Many 
now have a viable skill 
to offer society — 
shoeshining, ditch 
digging, serving 
breakfast in bed and 
many more. All of the 
upper classmen who so 
selfishly donated their 
time have felt that the 
program truly 
something worthwhile." 
Anyone interested in 
joining in the program 
(there is still time) 
should not contact Dr. 
Throgmorton or Bess 
Robinson. They don't 
know anything about it.

Pride of Place 

The growth of a rose garden 

By Dr. Darrell Loyless 

We will begin 
construction of a new 
rose garden near 
Hamilton Hall during 
the month of November. 
Our plan is to complete 
it before the end of the 
year. Let me apologize 
in advance for the 
minor inconvenience it 
will cause, especially 
for those of us who have 
worn the footpath from 
the cafeteria circle to 
thf administration 
building sidewalk. 
When the garden is 
completed, we'll have a 
more functional as well 
as a more beautiful 
place to walk, talk and, 
maybe even study. 

When we finish the 
garden, we will have 
benches for everyone to 
use. My hope is that the 
1983 graduating class 
will provide one of the 
benches as a lasting 
reminder of their years 

The completion of the 
Rose Garden is an 
important project for 
our beautification 
program. Unlike 
parking lots or small 
plantings, the garden 
will set some 
precedents about the 
kind of pedestrian 
lighting we will used 
again at other campus 
locations. It will also be 
a major step in the 
beautification program 
because it will totally 
change the looks and 
use of an area of 
campus. This will be the 
first time this has been 
done since the 
completion of Crumley 

I must close by saying 
that I enjoyed the 
Conglomerate entry in 
the pumpkin carving 
contest. "Pride of 
Pumpkin" just 
reinforced my belief 
that "beautification is 
in the eye of the 
beholder "

Ground Zero 

(Continued from page 1 ) 

Right now, 15 people 
from the Shreveport 
community are 
involved in the local 
chapter of Ground Zero 
The group's current 
project is a letter- 
writing campaign — to

Senators know that 
there are people in their 
districts who advocate a 
nuclear freeze. 
Tentative plans for the

materials about Ground 
Zero) and anti-nuclear 

art exhibit from 

Whether or not you 
are interested in 
becoming a member of 
Ground Zero, or 
advocate a nuclear 
freeze, Throgmorton 
invites you to come by 
his Library Basement 
office to pick up some 
materials on the 
subjects. Whatever 
your opinions, qualify 
them by reading about

year's exhibit offers the 
viewing public an 
excellent survey of the 
wide range of media and 
style being created 
across the nation today. 

The junior was Joe 
Shannon, Curator from 
the Hirshhorn Museum 
and Sculpture Garden, 
Washington DC. A 
nationally recognized 

artist and author, he 
selected 106 works for 
the exhibit from a field 
of over 1,300 entries from 
41 states, truly 
4 'national" in scope. 

There are two major 
categories in the 1982 
exhibit : two-dimension- 
al or 4 'painting" and 
three-dimensional or 
"sculpture". Media 
included in painting are 
oil, watercolor, acrylic, 
etching, charcoal, 
pencil, and ink and 
crayon on paper. The 
sculpture includes such 
diverse media as soap- 
stone, marble, steel, 
wood, bronze, 
plexiglass, clay, paper, 

One artist accepted in 
the exhibit is visually 
handicapped, Dan 

Girouard, of Broussard, 
Louisiana. He says that 
"Art is a lifetime of 
investigating." He is not 
a "blind artist" but an 
"artist who happens to 
be blind." He works 
primarily in clay but has 
ventured into fiberglass 
and marble. 

Awards of merit 
totaling $4,850 were 
awarded to twelve 
artists. There were six 
Shreveport artists 
accepted into this 

Many of the works are 
for sale. C. P. credit is 
given for this exhibit.

Greek Beat 

Editor's Note: Hey 
Zsa Zsa — you need to 
invest in a package of 
"unruled" typing 
paper. T.L., you're off 
the hook this week, but 
next time I hope to hear 
a different excuse. The 
two sororities on 
campus need to take a 
lesson from the frats 
called "typewriting 
101" since neither of 
them seem to be able to 
understand that Greek 
TYPED. And as for the 
TKE's and Theta Chi's 
you make my job less

We would like to 
thank the pledge class 
for a terrific Halloween 
party. A lot of time and 
effort went into this 
party and the actives 
appreciated every bit of 
it, right down to the last 
WIRE. It was EVER so 
CLEAR that the actives 
were supposed to have 
only a good time and a 
lot of laughs. We hope 
the TKE's and KA's 
enjoyed our ZTA choir 
which consisted of 
every creature from 
E.T. to Raggedy Ann 
and Broom Hilda. We 
even had a chance to 
practive some facts 
about ZTA, that we as 
actives should know. 
Even though being in an 
old barn, filled with 
horsedookyatll p.m. is 
no proper place to recite 
our creed, we all had a 
wonderful time. The

Week. Happy birthday,

Congratulations to

Thursday. Gee! 
Elizabeth, you really go 
to extremes to brighten 
up our rainy nights 
down at ZTA house.

The Iota Gamma 
Chapter of Chi Omega 
would like to thank our 
fantastic pledge class 
for giving us a 
Halloween Party last 
Sunday night. Ya'll are 

We'd also like to 
thank the TKE's for 
their Graveyard Party. 
It really brought the 
dead back to life. 

We'd like to extend 
hearty get well wishes 
to Cherie Winters who 
was in the hospital last 
week. Welcome back — 
we missed you. 

Congratulations to all 
three of Chi O's winning 
volleyball teams. 

We're looking 
forward to Parent-

Pledge of the Week Matt 
Robinson, upon learning 
of the honor, 

Attention all second, third, fourth, fifth, 
and, yes, sixth generation Centenary 
students. The Office of Public Relations and 
Alumni Relations want to know who you are. 

And we would like to take your picture. 
Please assemble for a photography session 
Tuesday, Nov. 9, at 11 a.m. in the Hargrove 
Memorial Band Shell. At that time, we would 
also like to get the names of all those parents, 
grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. who 
attended Centenary before you. 

If it is raining, we will meet in the Student 
Union Building. And if you are unable to make 
it, please contact Janie Flournoy or Chris 
Webb before Tuesday.

Matt failed to commit 
suicide but did cure his 

Tau Kappa Epnilon 

Once again the active 
members of Tau Kappa 
Epsilon have done it. 
After listening to a 
great deal of chatter 
from the pledge class of 
the said fraternity, the 
actives crushed the 
impetuous youngsters 
27-6. Subsequently, the 
pledges treated their 
elders to steak dinners. 

We are glad to 
welcome Karen 
Klusendorf as the 
newest addition to our 
Order of Diana. And our 
Graveyard Party was 
certainly a success in 
terms of fun, which was 
experienced vicariously 
by Franco and 

By the way, Franco 
has been accepted into 
the Ozarks School of 
Taxidermy in 
Jonesboro, Ark.

This week not only do 
we have mystery 
pledges, but we also 
have mystery actives.

posted on the new active 
board. This week 
Warde's date Saturday 
night went to play tennis 
and went fishing in the 
graveyard. Nice date 
Warde! Burke really 
kept track of time this 
weekend; but he still 
had a midnight jungle 
juice binge with Tony. 
The KA's all had a good 
time at James' Bat 
Cave Party. And yes, 

Bob was bouncing off of 
air molecules again. 
Well, the KA's in 
general can't wait until 
jungle party next year. 
Mainly because the 
pledges say they're 
keeping the pool up.

by the way Jami, how's 
the water bed scene? 
Hey Kathleen, I heard 
you're trying out for the 
lead singer for the band, 

Theta Chi 

Hello deh, 

We at Theta Chi are 
looking forward to the 
festivities of this 
weekend when the 
infamous Mafia Party 
takes place. The old 
Dean Martin records 
are being dusted off for 
casual play at the 
dinner on Saturday at 
that famous Italian 
restaurant, Mama 
Mia's. We are also 
looking forward to the 
pre-party on Friday 
night when we will trash 
yet another hotel suite. 
A swell weekend will be 
experiend by everyone. 

Congratulations goes 
out to President D.L. 
who was named to PAC. 
Does that mean that 
Missy doesn't have Pac 
Man fever? 

The pledge class 
theme song for this 
week is 4 'On the Road 
Again". Isn't that right 

And one final note, as 
the white puff of smoke 
rose from the Chi-0 
house last Sunday it was 
apparent that the 
Hooter Conclave had 
ended with the election 
of a new Head Hooter.

Soccer goes f or the TAAC West Title 

The Centenary 
College Soccer team 
be in Abilene, 
Texas, at Hardin- 
Simmons University 
this Saturday, Nov. 6, 
for the Trans American 
Athletic Conference 
Western Division 
Soccer Tournament. 

The Western Division 
is made up of Centenary 
College (CO, Houston 
Baptist (HBU), Hardin- 
Simmons (HSU) and 
Nicholls State (NSU). 
The Western Division 
voted to conduct their 
tournament on a one- 
day basis, while the 
Eastern Division 
schools, Georgia 
Souther, Mercer and 
Sanford, voted to hold 
their tournament over a 
(wo-day period. 

The winner of each 
division will compete 
for the TAAC Soccer 
Championship on Nov. 
12, in Houston, Texas. 
The TAAC champion 
will have a good chance 
to receive a bid to the 
NCAA Soccer 

The Gents take their 
best-ever overall record 
into the soccer 
tournament. The Gent 
kickers are 9-2 and are 
averaging 3.7 points per 
game, while their 
opponents have been 
held to a mere 1.8 points 
per game. 

The Gents are led by 
freshman goalie Bo 
Mangum. Mangum, a 6- 
1, 165-pounder, from 
Shreveport, La., has 
four shutouts to his 
credit. In addition, he 
has played in every 
game, accumulating 92 
saves and allowing only 
20 goals. 

On the offense, 
Ammar Anbouba, a 5- 
10, 155-pound 
sophomore from Syria, 
is the team's leading 
scorer with a total of 27 
points. He has 11 goals 
and five assists to his 
credit. Sam St. Phard, a 
6-3, 180-pound, 
freshman, from Baton 
rouge, La., is seond on 
the team with 26 points, 
while Jay Poss, a 6-1, 
165, junior from 

Shreveport, La., is third 
on the team with 22 

"I don't like having to 
play two games in one 
day," head soccer 
coach Enos Russell said 
about playing the 
Western Divsion Soccer 
Tournament in one day. 
"It's going to be hard 
enough for us to slip 
past one team, but to 
slip past both teams in 
the same day is going to 
be quite a challenge for 
our young men." 

Russell is referring to 
HBU's sixth place and 
HSU's tenth place 
rankings in the 
Midwestern Region. 
Both teams are favored 
to win the tournament 
and are seeded one-two, 

The games will start 
at 9 a.m. with HBU 
playing NSU. At 11 a.m. 
CC (the number three 
seed) will play HSU (the 
number two seed). The 
consolation game will 
be played at 1 p.m., 
while the championship 
game will start at 3:30.

Grenchik takes race 

Harriers finish second in TAAC 

November 1, the cross-country team traveled to Nachitoches to compete in 
the TAAC championship. The race was a 10,000 meter distance. The weater 
was warm and overcast, and the course was dry. 

Nine schools competed in the race but only two schools, Centenary and 
Houston Baptist were ever really in the running. Centenary was in first place 
after the first mile with runners in the first, fourth, sixth, seventh and ninth 
places. Houston Baptist was a close second with runners in the second, third, 
fifth places. After four miles Centenary was still in first place, but just 
barely. The lead was lost with a half of a mile left in the race. 

Houston Baptist won the race with a total of 25 points, with Centenary 
coming in second with 41 points. Steve Grenchik won the race for Centenary 
and was voted Runner of the Year. Grenchik along with David Watkins and 
David Bellar were placed on the All-Conference Team. 

Individual places and times for the Gent Harriers were : 

Steve Grenchik 1st 

David Watkins 6th 

David Beller 8th 

Greg Blackman 12th 

Danny Talley 14th 

Bill Jones 18th

"We are very happy, 
feel fortunate to have 
defeated some of the 
other teams here, 
especially Centenary, 
which has a strong 
team. The key to us 
winning was the efforts 
of Carlos Ward and 
Scott Lucas. They have 
been out with illness and 
injuries and we didn't 
know how they would 
run. We expected our 
other three runners to 
do well and they came 
through. We ran six 
freshmen today and are 
looking forward to 
defending the title next 


"Houston Baptist got 
its block together and 
ran as a team and 

struck together. 
Houston Baptist ran a 
smart race, we can do 
far better. We have alot 
of young runners and I 
think the heat during the 

last mile run hurt us. It 
was a slow race and our 
guys tightened up and 
Houston Baptist ran 
relaxed. We fell apart 
the last half mile. 
Usually we hold our 
position after the third 
mile, but today it wasn't 
our turn."

Ladies in 

Nothing but good 
news flowed from the 
National Association of 
Athletics (NAIA) 
District 30 meeting at 
Bellhaven College in 
Jackson, Miss., the 
week of October 11. 

When the Centenary 
College women's 
athletic program joined 
the NAIA last August, 
head women's coach 
Joe St. Andre was 
worried his Ladies 
would not be able to 
play in the NAIA post 
season women's 
championship in 
Kansas March 17-19. 

That question was 
answered at the district 
30 meeting when the 
athletic directors voted 
to allow Centenary to 
compete in the 
championship this year. 

' This makes it very 
worthwhile for us," St. 
Andre said after 
learning of the news. "If 
they had not allowed us 
to compete in the 
national tournament it 
would have been very 
disappointing for the 
girls otherwise." 

The AD's divided the 
district into two 
divisions ., an east and 
west division, with 
Centenary being in the 

west division along with 
Dillard University, 

Louisiana College 
Southern of Nei 
Orleans and Xavie 

However, there is i 
scheduling problem 
because the schools in 
the west division have 
already finalized their 
schedules and the 
Ladies only have 
Louisiana College on 
their schedule. 

Therefore, the AD's 
decided to designate 
three team already on 
the Ladies schedule, all 
three NAIA schools, to 
count toward the 
necessary eight games 
to qualify for the district 

That means if the 
Ladies win theii 
division and then the 
district, then they will 
host the regional 
tournament in the Gold 
Dome Complex. 

Arkansas Tech, Wiley 
College and William 
Carey are the games 
designated to count 
towards the district 
crown. The district also 
announced that the two 
winners of each divison 
will play at the site of 
the team with the best 
record for the district 
championship, with tK 
winner of the district 
hosting the regional 
play offs.

Centenary students for Peace and Justice 

By Bess Robinson 
Features Editor 
If you ever think 
about local, national, or 
international issues, 
you probably 
sometimes feel 
overwhelmed by their 
complexities — IF you 
ever stop to think about 
them. Rather than learn 
about major problems, 
many people choose to 
ignore them. When 
asked what they think, 
these people can only 
"rely" on hearsay or 
their own un- or 
misinformed opinions. 
Are you this type of 
person? If so, 
Centenary student 
Michael Hayes and Tom 
DeVries, Associate 
Director of the Church 
Careers Program, just 
might have an answer 
for you: a group they 
have tentatively named 

Centenary Students for 
Peace and Justice. 

Hayes and DeVries 
have come up with'the 
idea of organizing a sort 
of clearing-house or 
forum where those 
interested can meet and 
learn about any number 
of issues, and then take 
an organized stand on 

The two cite the peace 
movement as an 
example. Instead of 
complaining about the 
apathy on campus, we 
could be joining forces 
to learn and perhaps do 
something about what 
has become a world- 
wide concern. As Hayes 
points out, peace is not 
just a Christian concern 
— it is a very human one 
as well. DeVries feels 
that as a a church- 
related school, 
Centenary College has 

certain basic values, 
and a campus-based 
peace-seeking should be 
an active and visible 
part of the school's 

Both Hayes and 
DeVries are 
enthusiastic that their 
proposed idea will not 
only make the 
Centenary community 
more aware of issues 
facing Americans 
today, but will allow 
participants to find 
avenues by which they 
can voice their opinions. 
The two hope that the 
organization will 
become a recognized 
institution of learning — 
about such topics as 
ecology, poverty, 
nuclear weaponry and 
war, world peace, 
hunger, sexism, and 
racism. They envision 
debates, rallies, letter- 

writing campaigns, 
petitions, and speakers 
as well as pamphlets 
and other written 
materials, as integral 
parts of the program. 

As of now, Centenary 
Students for Peace and 
Justice is still in the 
organizational stages. 
Before it can become 
recognized as an official 
campus organization, 
its two founders--and 
anyone interested in 
seeing it become a 
reality--must go 
through the proper 
channels to see that is 
established. If you are 
interested in this 
endeavor, you are 
invited to contact 
Michael Hayes (221- 
0564) or Tom DeVries 
(5156) for further

Brains, Guts, and Style! 

Rehired is Wayne Amerine's "Cows," which is on display in Meadows Museum through 
Member 29, as part of the Biennial National Exhibition. 

By John Whitworth 

There are those 
among us who are 
highly intelligent. There 
are those whom we 
deem courageous. Still 
others stand on their 
eloquence. But in the 
present days of 
television, junk food, 
and cheap thrills, we 
might have some 
difficulty in finding one 
person who displays all 
of these characteristics. 
Literate bookholders, 
we are truly blessed, for 
one week from today 
there will oe a man in 
our midst who is a 
fuming containment of 
brains, guts, and style. 

This elusive 
combination has made 
our guest a three-time 
winner of the Writer's 
Guild of America 
Award, winner of three 
Nebula aware s, and a 
six-time winner of the 
highly esteemed Hugo 
award-all of which is 
unequaled by any other 

He is his own guinea 
pig. He has been 
everything from a bush 
salesman to a hired gun, 
and he has done so for 
one reason. ..the 
experience. From his 
experiences he has 
written some Oi the 
most explosive and 

prolific literature of our 
times. He is hailed by 
writers throughout the 
world, praised by 
politica and social 
activist* , loved the 
NOW, a i d scorned by 
Anita Bryant. He is 
Harlan E'llison. He is 
unique, and what is 
unique is controversial, 
and what is 
controversial deserves 
our attention. 

So for the love of 
stimulation, come see 
brains, guts, and style 
force Vs way into this 
placi J microcosm. 
Come experience the 
vigor that is Harlan

* Speakers Forum 

Clean up the Caf 

Recently, several 
students gathered to 
discuss a dissatisfaction 
with recent cafeteria 
service. We came to the 
conclusion that 
immediate action 
should be taken to 
satisfy the needs of all 
cafeteria patrons. 

The cafeteria is not 
only a gathering place 
for students and faculty 
to partake of a meal, but 
also a place to relax and 
socialize. We as 
students find it difficult 
to do this when we 
discover such things as 
hairs in our potatoes, 
roaches in our corn and 
on our do-nuts, worms 
in our casseroles, and 

grease in everything 
from cheesecake to 
coffee. Periodically, 
cups, glasses, and 
utensils and found 

unclean which is quite 
unsanitary. Also, 
students are getting 
tired of a menu that is so 
heavy laiden with 
starches such as rice 
and mashed potatoes. 

Several students have 
complained about the 
above situations leading 
those of us who have 
complied with this letter 
to speak out. We are not 
trying to anger anyone 
or blame anyone for 
these occurences. All 
that we want to 
accomplish is a clean up 
of the cafeteria so that it 
may be enjoyed by all 
who use it once again.

From the Wizard's Kettle 

By J. Alan Irvine 
For the past few 
months the members of 
the Sociology 
Department and friends 
have spent some of their 
free time helping out 
with the Adopt-A-School 
program, as reported 
here in the 
throughout that time 
still more people have 
asked, "Just what do 
you do at Adopt-A- 
School?" Briefly, here's 
what I do: 

8:45 a.m. Tuesday 
morning, or 
thereabouts, I set aside 
the morning paper and 
head on out. Since 
Creswell Elementary 
stands so close by, and 
since the morning air 
smells so fresh, I walk 
over. I reach Mrs. 
Davis's second floor 
classroom right about 
the time the kids come 
in from music or PE 
(I've never figured out 
which). As they come in 
they greet me rather 
enthusiastically with 
smiles, waves, hugs and 
gather round to show off 
some new addition to 
the room (a couple of 
weeks ago it was the 
hamster), something 
they've been working 
on, or just to talk. 
Everyone gets their 
stuff from their locker, 
finds their desk (which 
seem to be rearranged 

almost every time I 
come) , and settles down 
while Mrs. Davis takes 
care official business 
like calling the roll. I 
often exchange furtive 
whispers with whoever 
I'm close to as she does. 

The class is divided 
into three groups for 
language arts, spelling, 
and the like. Mrs. Davis 
gives some 
assignments; then, 
while she goes to work 
with one group, she has 
me work with another, 
after first briefing me 
on what they're doing. 
Usually we check 
homework, often 
spelling lessons. Or I 
may help with an 
assignment. Sometimes 
we discuss the latest 
reading assignment. 
Always something 
different. I get to 
circulate throughout the 
groups a good deal, so I 
know all the kids pretty 

If we finish our work 
early, and Mrs. Davis is 
busy with another 
group, I have an extra 
chance to visit. They tell 
me what's going on at 
Creswell, show me 
projects that they're 
working on, ask me all 
kinds of questions, or 
(now that they've 
discovered my 
storytelling talents) 
gather around and 
demand a story or tow. 

We hear a lot of talk 

these days that our 
educational system 
destroys creativity. In 
Mrs. Davis's class at 
least it just isn't so. 
Everyone seems to be 
interested in 
something; interests 
Mrs. Davis cultivates 
and encourages as 
much as possible. 
Several of the kids are 
rather accomplished 
artists. A lot are 
interested in music, 
many of them play the 
recorder. The entire 
class is excited about 
their upcoming play for 
the PTA, giving me a 
special, command 
performance since I 
can't make the real one. 
We're currently 
working on a creative 
writing (in fact, I 
presented a talk and 
some exercises on the 
subject a couple of 
weeks ago), trying to 
work it in where ever 
possible. Reading ranks 
high on everyone's list 
of things to do. 
11a.m. rolls around all 
too soon. I've 
discharged my official 
"duty" and am free to 
leave. But I always stay 
late, involved in 
whatever's going on, 
enjoying myself too 
much to hurry back to 
studying, chores, and 
hassles. Without a 
doubt, Tuesday 
mornings are one of the 
highlights of my week. 

Letter to the Editor 

Dear Editor, 

It is my great 
pleasure to announce 
that Centenary College 
now has a chapter of one 
of America's most 
respected dinner clubs: 
The Atlantic City 
Supper Club. This club, 
based in New Jersey, 
has been exclusively 
East Coast (including 
Florida) and Great 
Lakes, but due to a 
typographical error on 
the part of their 
computer, Centenary 
College, through a most 
fortunate and surprised 
student, now has the K 
Chapter of this great 
supper club. 

Certain select 
students will be 
informed in matters of 
membership, the cost of 
which is $35 a month, 
and given the monthly 
newsletter (which more 
resembles a nautical 
magazine) and flown 

each month East to 
Atlantic City for the 
yacht races. 

This month 
Jacqueline Bisset will 
read Yeats on the 
Farnsworth Pier on 
Club property post race, 
and drinks will be 
served following hors 
d'oeuvres. The movie on 
the plane will be 
''Captain Blood," 
starring Errol Flynn. 

The Atlantic City 
Supper club was 
founded in 1897 by 
Theodore Roosevelt, 
when he bought a yacht 
from the Nathanael 
Herreshoff plant. 
Backed by Cornelius 
Vanderbilt, he bought 
640 acres of prime New 
Jersey waterfront, and 
built the gaunt, three- 
story clubhouse which 
stands there to this day. 
The club owns the only 
remaining lifeboat of 
the Titanic, the last four

Centenary should no 
longer be called a 
college. It should be 
called Centenary 
Nursery School. No — 
Centenary Junior High 
is more appropriate 
(nursery school 
students are more 
civilized than junior 
high students). It 
appears that a lot of 
students have adopted a 
few childish 

Case one: The video 
games and pinball 
machines were 
removed from the SUB. 
Why? Because they 
were being misused and 
vandalized by people 
from this 4 'institute of 
higher learning." 
Evidently the vandals 
couldn't comprehend 
the warning signs that 
threatened to take the 
toys away. Maybe I'm 
jumping to conclusions. 
It could have been an 
accident that one of the 
pinball machines lost its 
glass, pinballs, and 

Case two: Students 

seem to love to mal 
other people's busine 
their own. A lot 
people seem to td

The Conglomerate is 
experi: ^ nting with a 
new coh<£. n called "The 
Grapev%e". Last 
Monday % night, I 
collected $\ssified ads 
from people in the 
library between 8:00 
and 11:00, and I was 
overwhelmed by the 
response. This week the 
ads were free, next

each ad. Further details 
will be posted in the caf 
sometime this week.

Movie Review 

"The Secret of N.I.M.H." 

By J. Alan Irvine 

Do not let yourself be 
put off by this movie's 
"G" rating. It is not 
your typical cute, 
"Disneyish" cartoon 
feature for the kids. 
Imagine instead a film 
combining elements of 
Watership Downs, 
Empire Strikes Back, 
The Hobbit, Lord of the 
Rings (the book), Wind 
in the Willows, 
Chronicles of Prydain, 
Stuart Little and many 

The Secret of 
N.I.M.H. , a fantasy 
bordering on the realms 
of epic, centers on Mrs. 
Brisbane, a recently 
widowed field mouse. 
Mrs. Brisbane finds 
herself with a son who 
cannot be moved from 
hi$ bed due to 
pneumonia. However, 
spring has come early 
and the farmer is about 
to begin plowing the 
field in which the family 
lives. They must move 
at once or be killed. 
Mrs. Brisbane seeks out 
the terrifying Great Owl 
for advice. He directs 
her to seek the aid of the 
rats who live on the 

farm. These rats form a 
secret, mysterious 
society held in awe by 
the other animals, 
evoking the distrustful 
suspicions of the 
humans. When*. finally 
admitted to the 
spectacular fortress she 
finds not only unguessed 
marvels, but dark 
forces ready to use her 
for their own ends... 

The characters are 
lively and real, animals 
in form only, and as in 
Watership Down we 
quickly cease to notice 
the animalness of them, 
they become people to 
us. Mrs. Brisbane, 
Justin, Jenna and 
others, though at first 
glance lifted straight 
from the pages of 
innumerable stories 
come alive, each with 
his or her own quirks 
and mannerisms. How 
many "cartoon" 
characters actually 
curse when disaster 
strikes like Justin does? 
Mrs. Brisbane runs the 
gambit from pure 
courage, loving 
tenderness, utter 
exasperation, to 
paralyzing terror better 
than many "human" 

actresses do. Dom 
Deluiseas, Jeremy, the 
poor, lovelorn crow 
without a mate; is at his 
absolute funniest. 
Shakespearean actor 
Dereck Jacobi brings to 
Nicodemus the aura of 
power and majesty that 
should surround a 
sorceror, but all too 
often doesn't. Hardly a 
character here does not 
develop into a real, 
living individual. 

The artists who 
produced N.I.M.H. 
formerly worked for the 
Disney corporation, but 
all left in disgust at 
what they felt was the 
bastardization of the 
original artistry of 
Disney, at trading in 
creativity and its 
inherent risk for the 
safety of the old and 
tried successes, even 
shortcutting these 
methods in a sacrifice to 
N.I.M.H. is their 
attempt to restore the 
beauty and magic to 
animation. They have, 
without doubt, 

Beauty fills every 
picture, every frame of

the movie. Colors dazzle 
the eye in stunning 
effects — from the 
shimmering gold ancT, 
ruby amulet and the 
hazing light of the 
mystic tone in the first 
scenes, to the flustered 
Jeremy entangled in 
bright colored yarn, to 
the fiery spectacular 
climax. Darker shades 
and images fill the story 
too — the ancient, 
spectral Great Owl; the 
sorcerous Nicodemus in 
his dark, wizard's 
chamber; Jenna, the 
arch villian, dressed, as 
true villians should be, 
in dark robes and a 
flowing, jet-black cloak. 
Small touches of reality 
so often omitted in 
animation, abound. 
Mrs. Brisbane glances 
up as she backs through 
a door. Clothing grows 
darker when wet. 
Shadows follow a hand 
across the page of a 
book. Exquisite love 
and care has been 
lavished on every scene. 

Now on its second run, 
The Secret of N.I.M.H. 
may not be around long, 
so see it as soon as 
possible. Definitely not 
a children's movie, it's 
rather a fairy tale of the 
old kind, before fairy 
tales became the bland, 
watered down, washed 
out things of today; a 
fairy tale full of power, 
of evil, of black deeds, 
of shades of deep 
darkness, of rich 
textures, and most 
importantly — full of 
beauty. Don't miss it.

Have you ever been to 
Leon's? Oh, you don't 
know what you're 
missing. When you're 
tired of junk food and 
caf food, this is the place 
to go. Leon's is famous 
for smoked turkey, and 
with good reason, but 
their other food is 
delicious as well. Prices 
are not particularly low, 
but remember — you're 
getting food, not filler. 
Leon's offers wonderful 
sandwiches and po- 
boys, ranging in price 
from $2.50 to $3.05. They 
also offer hamburgers 
and barbeque on a bun 
ranging from $1.50 to 
$2.50. If you're more in 
the mood for sampling, 
try Leon's plate ($4.50) 

which includes your 
choice of two meats- 
beef, ham, turkey, hot 
links, pork, or ribs and 
two side orders — 
beans, potato salad, 
fries, or cole slaw. On 
my last visit I selected 
the turkey and hot links 
with barbeque sauce. 
The hot sausage and the 
hot sauce were just too 
hot for me, but my 
Texas friends loved it. 
The turkey was 
delicious, as always. 

Atmosphere is 
obviously not Leon's 


main attraction. ' 
interior is small 
somewhat stark, 
there's always 
newspaper lying arouu 
and people can be see 
munching happily 
sandwich while readin 
the daily news. Leon'si 
open Monday throug 
Saturday at 303 Ear 
Kings Highway, next I 
Southern Ma 
Doughnuts. This is fl 
the place to spend 
romantic evening, h 
for good, filling food-ai 
lots of it — leon's can 
be beat.

somewhat different, if 
not completely 
entertaining, approach 
to meeting of last 
Sunday night. Amsler,

to dance like that?

Kappa Alpha 

The K.A.s would like 
to thank the Z.T.A.s for 
a wild swap. And Cindy 
said she didn't know 
there was one. Tony, 
Jimmy, and Nick had 
another Brotherhood 

Building session this 
weekend in Jimmy's 
room! Our alumni are 
keeping the fine 
tradition in getting 
kicked out of bars. 
Right James? Animal 
please call home if 
you're reading this, 865- 
8543. Hodges if your're 
reading this, stop by 
home 106 Washington. 
Yokem if you see this 
check with daddy first 
to see which one of these 
you can do. This week 
was back to our old self 
with 25 cent Colorado 
Spring water. The K.A. 
volleyball team 
promises to get ripped 
that Thursday night, 
win, loose or draw. Why 
not come and join 25 
cent reeb. Hiya, Buger 
Hair. Hey Liz I want my 
towel back. 

Theta Chi 

Was Mafia Party and 
assorted pre-parties a 
kick or what? All the 
party Garanimals were 
in rare form for the pre- 
party with Gov. Treen 
last Friday night. We 
would like to apologize 
to the Chi-O's for getting 
you so polluted just 
mere hours before your 
banquet. The dinner at 
Mama Mia's on 
Saturday night was 
really swell too. Volare. 
Some good spaghetti 
was eaten by all. The 
party itself on Saturday 
was — do I dare say — 

The Brothers and 
pledges of Theta Chi are 
proud to announce our 
latest pledge. He is Mr. 
Brad Davis who hails 
from Richardson, Texas 

(That's right outside of 
Texas' second city, 

We would also like to 
announce that Carole 
1 'Sweetheart" Powell 
and Andy "Who?" 
Freeman have decided 
to make things legal. A 
date hasn't been set. 

We are eagerly 
looking forward to 
Barnyard this weekend. 
And finally, no, the cat 
is not dead — yet. 

Kappa Sigma 

P.J. party week was 
great. The hunt for the 
Peking Mule was 
successfully completed 
with the capture of 
several mules. Leader 
of the hunt, Joey Kent 
(aka Marlin Perkins) 
felt the effects of the 
hunt in such a way that 
he is considering 
becoming a clinical 

psychologist. This after 
his total destruction of 
the Hotel Livesay. The 
hayride and bonfire 
turned out to be just a 
bonfire. Despite all this 
a good time was had by 
most with the exception 
of a sick person who 
indeed proved he was 
not very breit (sic.) 
P.J. party capped all of 
this off with high spirts 
and loud music. Lisa 
Parker is P.J Girl, 
John 0. and Elmo came 
in matching p.j.'s and 
with matching dates. A 
great time was had by 
all who attended.

Gents close season 

The Gent kickers 
traveled last weekend to 
Abilene, Texas, 
to compete 

in the West Division 
Playoffs of the T.A.A.C. 
Thte Gents opened up 
against 10th ranked 
Hardin-Simmons in the 
11a.m. game. Hardin- 
Simmons emerged the 
winner 3-0. H.S. scored 
quickly after 1:56 had 
been played in the first 
half. However goalie Bo 
Mangum's save of Peter 
Walker's penalty kick 
gave the Gents back 
some momentum. The 

Gents trailed at the half 
1-0. In the second half 
the H.S. Cowboys wore 
the Gents down. Tim 
O'Leary scored the 
second goal for H.S. on a 
penalty kick, and then 

again scored with 8 
minutes left in the game 
as he out-distanced 
Scott Davidson and 
kicked the ball past the 
outstretched arms of 
goalie Mangum. 

In the second game 

Centenary battled 
Nichols State to a 2-2 
standoff for third place 
in the Western Division. 
Nichols State scored 
first 8:56 into the first 
half. Centenary came 
back 15:21 into the half 
to tie the score 1-1 on a 
goal by Jay Poss. 
Nichols went ahead 2-1 
at 21:19 into the half to 
give them the lead at 
half time. Centenary 
came back once again 
to tie the game at 2-2 on 
a score by Scott 
Davidson, with an assist 
going to Amaar 

The Gents ended their 
season with at 11-3-1 
record. Of the team 
coach Enos Russell 
said, "I thought our 
guys played extremely 
hard and had nothing to 
be ashamed of, 
however, we're only a 
couple of players away 

of competing for the 

championships. Next; 
year we will be top."

A Reactionist's Feast 

Immutability. Is it a 
beast of our 
environment that slowly 
deadens our minds, or is 
it a matter of 
inheritance? Do we 
learn to suck it in with 
the smog, gasping 
quietly to ourselves, 
forgetting about in the 
onslaught of our daily 
pursuits, or is it innate? 
Sometimes I wonder if 
our country has adopted 
the attitude that it is 
better to be a pig 
satisfied than a 
Socrates dissatisfied. 
Many of us do attempt 
to remove the shackles 
from our minds, but few 
of us devote our entire 
lives and all of our 
energy toward that 
goal. Harlan Ellison is 
one of the few. 
He was born in Ohio in 
1934 and began 
submitting essays and 
stories to his hometown 
newspaper when he was 
^ years old. While yet 
a teenager, he ran away 
from home, joined a 
circus, worked his way 
fround the country, and 
ttan returned to study 
Ohio State 

University. Eighteen 
m °nths later, he was 
^ked to leave for being 
to a short-sighted 

writing professor who 
told Harlan that he had 
no talent. (An excellent 
example of 
immutability) . 
He was in New York by 
1955, writing feverishly, 
but selling little to 
nothing. During this 
time, he assumed a 
false identity and joined 
a gang in Brooklyn 
called the Barons. From 
his experiences he 
gleaned some important 
material for use in later 
stories depicting urban 

A break came for 
Harlan in 1956 with the 
publication of his story 
"Glowworm." The 
event tore open the 
shutters of his career 
and by the end of 1958, 
he had published over 
150 stories. Even more 
remarkable is the fact 
that he had been drafted 
in to the army in 1957. 
After his discharge in 
1959, he moved to 
Chicago as editor of 
Rogue Magazine. Then 
in 1962, he moved west 
to Los Angeles where he 
has since remained. 

Harland Ellison has 
accumulated seven and 
half Hugo awards, three 
Writers Guild of 
America awards, three 

Nebula awards, and 
more. His vast 
repertoire of stories 
include "A Boy and His 
Dog," "I Have No 
Mouth and I Must 
Scream," "Gentleman 
Junkie," "Repent 
Harlequin," "Said the 
Ticktockman," "Pretty 
Maggie Moneyeyes," 
and the list goes on. He 
has written a 
considerable amount of 
material for television 
including scripts for 
The Alfred Hitchcok 
Hour (1963), The Outer 
Limits (1964), The Man 
From U.N.C.L.E. (1966 
and '67), and the Star 
Trek episode "The City 
on the Edge of Forever" 

But Harlan ceased 
writing for television 
eleven years ago 
because he didn't like 
what it was doing to this 
country and he longer 
wanted to be a part of it. 
He has stood firmly 
behind this conviction. 
In 1973, he walked away 
from $93,000 because a 
network butchered his 
original concept to the 
point that he disowned 
it. He turned down 
$285,000 when another 
network asked him to do 
mini-series with the 

stipulation that he 
include in his script the 
"state of the art 
equipment," (meaning 
flashly lights and 
explosions in space). 
Turning down that 
much money sounds 
incredible to students 
trying to scrape 
together two grand to 
pay off their college 
bills. But Harlan feels 
that his writing is the 
only thing in his life that 
has profound meaning 
and he won't sell out for 
any amount of money. 

When Harlan isn't 
writing (which, as you 
might expect, is a rare 
occasion), he his 
making public 
appearances. This 
serves two purposes: to 
help spread his ideas, 
and to pay his bills. 
Over the years, he has 
been in constant verbal 
warfare against every 
kind of political and 
social injustice. He has 
marched in civil rights 
demonstrations, joined 
with striking farmers in 
their picket lines, fought 
over ecological issues 
with condominium 
developers, and 
advocated gun control, 
prison reform, and the 
ERA. He absolutely

cannot tolerate anyone 
who makes a profit off 
of someone else's 

There is something in 
this man that each one 
of us can benefit from, 
something that is 
almost intangible, but 
powerful; something 
indescribable but 
moving. It is a force 
that compels a person to 
write 900 stories and 

hundreds of scripts. It is 
a root of motivation that 
makes a person focus 
all of his energy and 
ability to fight for what 
he believes. It is, as 
Dylan Thomas wrote, 
"The Force That 
Through the Green Fuse 
Drives the Flower." 

The SGA Forum has 
brought Harlan Ellison 
within reach of our 
privileged minds. He

Letter to the Editor 

ir Speakers Forum 

Students, clean up vour act 

Last year, Zebber 
Satcher, Ladies 
basketball center, was 
one of many students 
asked to write thank- 
you notes to her 
scholarship donor. This 
is something our 
scholarship recipients 
are asked to do each 
year both as a courtesy 
and as a commitment to 
donors and scholars in 
the future. 

Zeb didn't take the 
responsibility lightly 
and wrote such a warm 
and thoughtful letter 
that two things 
happened. The donor 
wanted to meet her on 
campus, and, as a 
result, the scholarship 
amount was 
substantially increased. 

While the result of 
this particular letter 
was noteworthy, our 
thank-you notes are sent 
only as an expression of 
gratitude. A letter from 
the student receiving 
aid is often more 
meaningful to the donor 

than the 
acknowledgment. With 
about 60 percent of 
students on some form 
of financial aid, our 
enrollment would not be 
what it is without this 

This brings us to the 
so-called "bottom line." 
Students on scholarship 
will soon receive a letter 
listing the names and 
addresses of their 
scholarship donors. 
Please take the time to 
send them a short note. 
It's a responsibility that 
is easily satisfied and 
will help you, other 
students, and Centenary

Recently a few of us 
gathered to discuss the 
distasteful article about 
CAF conditions. We 
came to the conclusion 
that the article was 
written in poor taste and 
was exaggerated. It 
read as though it was 
written by students who 
had absolutely nothing 
else left to complain 

The article made it 
sound as though one 
could find a hair or 
roach in his food all the 
time. Granted, a hair is 
found now and then and 
is not very appetizing, 
but it is certainly not 
anything to collapse 
about. One may find a 
hair in his food at the 
most expensive 
restaurant in 
Shreveport. Maybe if 
students would not 
brush their hair at the 
table or in line, they 
would not find hair in 
their food. All you have 
to do is return the dish 
and get a new serving of 

food. As far as a roach 
in a doughnut, that 
seems to be an isolated 
case. The caf has not 
received but one 
complaint about a 
roach. I'm sure at one 
time or another we've 
all seen a roach in our 
homes and they've 
probably gotten into 
food that we've left 
open. Even though we 
did not intend for this to 
happen, it did; but we 
lived through it. There 
also seems to be no 
complaint about grease 
in the coffee from 
students, because they 
go through about ten 
pots of coffee per meal. 

True, one 
occasionally comes 
across a dirty plate or 
utensil. But every dish, 
knife, fork, spoon and 
glass is sent through a 
dishwasher. It just so 
happened that not every 
single solitary piece 
comes clean every time. 
All one has to do is 
return the dirty object 

to the washroom and go 
get another fork or 
whatever. We are not 
forced to eat with the 
first utensil we pick up. 
If still one is not 
satisfied with 
cleanliness, maybe we 
will volunteer to 
handwash all the dishes 
and utensils so that they 
will meet his his high 
standard of cleanliness. 

As far as the menu, 
one can't expect a meal 
all the time he eats at 
home. For the food to be 
so bad, there is an awful 
long line for lunch and 
dinner. Sometimes the 
line is all the way to the 
door. For dinner 
students lining up to eat 
at 4:05 or 4:10 and the 
CAF doesn't open till 
4:30. What's the hurry if 
the food is so awful? 
Many times there is 
nothing left after meals, 
students have eaten 
everything that was

Roman Empire. 

Saturday night — the 
appointed time. The 
players gather — 
drifting in from diverse 
points. Seme come in 
from a mo\ie. Others 
return from buying one 
of the most important 
elements of an 
evening's gathering : 
food. Tonight doughnuts 
won out over pizza, 
which calls to mind an 
interesting question. 
Why is pizza the favored 
food for most off-the- 
wall gatherings like this 
one? Is it because it 

needs no preparation; 
you buy it readymade? 
Perhaps it's because 
Domino's delivers? 
(But then, what about 
before Domino's?) Do 
more people like pizza 
than, say, hamburgers? 
You can eat pizza with 
your hands, get really 
messy without dishes to 
clean up, yet still set it 
down quickly without 
worry. Could this be 
why? Whatever the 
reasons, tonight's fare 
consists of doughnuts, 
which have about the 
qualities of pizza except 
dcughnut places usually 
cion't deliver, and 
doughnuts are, 
hopefully, sweeter than 

Once everyone's 
settled with food and 
drink the game can 
begin. Well, not quite. 
First the board must be 
set up, the chariots 
devised. Every 
gathering seems to 
suffer this setting up 
phase. In this case, the 
time involved is longer 
than that required for a 
poker game, but shorter 
than deciding what to 
watch on TV. 

The bets are laid; the 
chariots stand ready. 
The game begins. 
Despite the fact that the 
objective of the game is

clearly stated in the 
rules (To cross the 
finish line first( almost 
everyone insists on 
establishing their own 
criteria. One follows the 
rules strictly — striving 
for the acknowledged 
victory. Another 
decided the objective is 
instead to have a 
rollicking good time 
viciously attacking the 
opposition — measuring 
victory by damage 
done. Torn between the 
two, a third tries to 
combine them, while a 
fourth just tries to get 
through unhurt and 
unnoticed. Everyone 
sets their own goals. 
Even the various 
spectators seem to be 
interested in different 
aspects of the game. 

For an hour or two the 
race goes on — 
sometimes exciting, 
sometimes dull. 
Finally, someone's 
chariot thunders across 
the finish line and the 
race is won. The other 
players figure up their 
losses, search for ways 
to prove that they really 
did bettert than 
ev- 'one seems to think 
the.y did. Once 
everyone's soothed 
their embarrassed egos, 
the next race begins. 

The Atlantic City to 
Galveston race 
concluded this week 
with the London in first, 
Donne running a close 
second by the bowsprit, 
and the Stevenson 
lagging a good three 
miles away to leeward 
for a third. After the 
tropical storm just off 
the Florida coast, 
eleven out of the fifteen 
boats were sunk, and 
one, the Manderley, 
grounded heavily on a 
reef. Colonel Bogey, 
captain of the sunk 
Drambui, was heard to 
yell, "I shall return and 
build the Drambui II!" 
But we have the famed 
Galveston Cup again, 
and what a disaster.

14 Students Stuff Phone Booth

ibles,)| centenary students 
udentj proved to all just how

r 0I4I The phone booth 
» plac^ stuffing contest was 
held last Thursday in 
fbet^fte shell during break, 
ass d ^ was interesting, to 
tudenti say the least, to watch a 
sywaj jgroup of college age 
• It isj people shoving, pushing 
JLEQl squeezing 
ve tkl themselves and their 
'ss. % friends into a phone 
lg uptf booth. And then after 
the booth was filled with 
contorted arms, legs, 
and torsos, the 
"hangers" were put into 
action. According to the 
"Official Rules and 
cleanij Regulations on Phone 
Booth Stuffing," a

person is considered to 
be in the booth if both 
their feet and hands are 
touching the inside of 
the booth. So if you 
thought you could 
escape getting involved 
in this embarrassing 
(yet fun) event by 
claiming claustrophobic 
tendencies, you soon 
found yourself hanging 
by your hands and feet 
inside the booth! 

The President's 
Advisory Council (PAC) 
was the first group to fill 
the booth. Actually, 
they were just 
demonstrating some 
good tips and 
techniques for other 
groups. However, they 
did manage ■ to get 
eleven people in the 
booth within the 
specified time limit. 

The second bold and 

daring group to 
participate in the 
contest was Chi Omega. 
Within sixty seconds 
they managed to 
squeeze fourteen 
"hooters" in the booth. 
After the Chi-O's many 
other groups were 
discouraged because 
they didn't even have 
fourteen people to begin 
with! So for a while it 
looked as if the Chi-O's 
were going to claim the 

But, alas, Centenary's 
International Students 
Organization (CISO) 
managed to round up 
fourteen people, and fit 
them all into the booth! 
Once again referring to 
the "Official Rules and 
Regulations on Phone 
Booth Stuffing," when 
in the event of a tie, both 

groups are given a 

second chance — but 
are given less time (30 
seconds) to get 
everyone in. 

However, since many 
of the Chi Omegas had 
already left, CISO 
agreed to call it a tie 
and split both the first 
place prize money ($25) 
and the second place 
prize money ($10) 
between Chi-0 and 

Along with the prize 
money came the glory 
of seeing yourself on the 
ten 0' clock news! 

Although Centenary 
students will do just 
about anything for a 
quick buck — they'll 
have a heck of a lot of 
fun doing it!

Over 8,000 men and 
women, both adult and 
students, will take part 
a unique program 
called "Outward 
Bound" this year. 
Designed so that 
participants will meet 
challenging experiences 
in wilderness settings at 
all times of the year, 
Outward Bound courses 

take place in more than 
a dozen states. While 
many come to Outward 
Bound seeking a taste of 
high adventure— and 
they'll probably get it— 
foost will leave with a

"impossible." Outward 
Bound believes many 
limits are self-imposed. 

mountaineering, rock 
climbing, canoeing, 
skiing, snowshoeing, 
sailing, cycling, rafting, 
and even caving form 
the core of the Outward 
Bound experience, 
depending on the 
environment in which 
the course takes place. 
Previous outdoor skills 
are necessary, as is 
special equipment other 
than personal clothing 
and boots. Each small 
group of students has 
one or more expert 
instructors and 
specialists who help 
them develop outdoor 

and interpersonal skills, 
culminating in a "final 
expedition, "with 
minimal instructor 
supervision, relying on 
what they have learned 
during the course. 
Academic credit is often 
available, as is financial 
aid based on need. In 
addition, several 
Outward Bound schools 
offer no-interest tuition 
loan plans, some for up 
to three years. 

Outward Bound 
courses are offered 
year-round and last 
from 5 to 26 days. For

If you happened to see 
lots of balloons floating 
over the campus 
yesterday, it was to help 
promote 4 The Great 
American Smokeout," 
which is today. This is 
the day when all 
smokers are asked to 
refrain from smoking 
all day — and maybe 
never start up again. 

This is the sixth 
consecutive year that 
"The Great American 
Smokeout" has been a 
national event. It 
originated in 
Monticello, Minn., by 
the local newspaper 
editor. In 1977, it was 
held on a nationwide 
basis for the first time, 
and since then, it has 


new location at south park mall 

been an annual 
occurring on 
Thursday before 
Thanksgiving. The 
smokeout has been a 
success in past years, 
and its promoters (the 
American Cancer 
Society) are determined 
to make it a success 
again this year. 

The goal of the event 
is to have one out of 
every five smokers quit 
smoking for this one 
day. According to their 
records, they have had 
an even higher 
participation rate. A 
survey conducted in 
1981 revealed that only 
1.1 percent of all 
smokers did not 
participate in the 
smokeout. The survey 
went on to reveal that 
6.7 percent of all the 

event people that did 
the participate had quit 
smoking permanently. 

So if you smoke, or if 
you know someone who 
does, why don't you join 
The Great American 
Smokeout — just take 
the pledge: I do solemly 
swear to give up 
smoking for The Great 
American Smokeout, 
Nov. 18. 1 promise not to 
smoke for 24 hours (and 
maybe longer), or to 
help a friend quit. Take 
the pledge and make 
many people happy — 
including your SGA and 
Larry Hagman, this 
year's National

Vital to the successful 
operation of Centenary 
College is an efficient 
SGA. Elected officers 
serve as important links

not only seek the views 
and opinions of their 
fellow students, but also 
to voice these views 
effectively and 
Presently, the office of 
Senior Senator is open. 
My name is Wade

that office, along with 
the challenge that 
accompany it. 

My reason for seeking 
the role of your 
represenative is simple. 
I would like to spend my 
final semester at 
Centenary actively 
working to improve 
campus life. For three 
and one half years I 
have benefited from my 
Centenary education 
and have enjoyed it for 
the most part, except 
for finals. I have 
recently had the 
opportunity to join the 
Centenary Public 
Relations Committee 

here. Centenary 
presented me with an 
opportunity to intern on 
Capitol Hill for four 
months last spring, 
which was a real 
learning experience. I 
was able to view our 
legal system firsthand. 
Now, with your help, I 
would like to contribute 
to Centenary campus 
life through government 
participation. By 
working for you, and by 
expressing your views, I 
can do this. 

I would appreciate 
your consideration.

Kickers ranked tenth 

The Gent kickers 
have been ranked in the 
top 10 of the Mid-west 
region of NCAA 
Division I. They are now 
one of the top 40 teams 
in the nation. "This is a 
great honor for us. It 
was a disappointment at 
the TAAC Tournament 

for us, but three out of 
the four teams in our 
division are ranked in 
the top ten. The Mid- 
West region is the 
strongest region in the 
country. This will be a 
great building block for 
next year. I had no idea 
that we would be ranked 
this year. My goal was 
to be ranked two years 
from now," said Head 
Coach Enos Russell. 

This season the Gents 

finished no worse than 
third in any 
tournament. They had 
the longest winning 
streak in the south 
U.S.A. this year when 
they won tljeir first ten' 
in a row. "We are only a 
few good players away 
from being nationally 
according to Coach 
Russell. Centenary is 
the smallest Division I 
college in the nation, yet 
out of 200 Division I 

schools, their soccer 
team is ranked in the 
top 40. Congratulations, 
Gents — we are prouder 
than proud of you.

Gents close season 

Why have a group of 
usually clean-cut guys 
suddenly started trying 
to grow facial hair? 
Because Centenary's 
baseball team has 
wrapped up its fall 
season— with a 14-10-3 

The fall season is 
played to give Coach 
James Farrar a chance 
to see his team in action 
before the spring 
season, which is when 
the conference games 
are played. 

Of his team this year, 

Dewberry — First Recruit for '83 

When the early NCAA 
national signing day for 
prep recruits got 
underway Nov. 10, 
Andrew Dewberry as 
their first recruit for the 
1983-84 basketball 

This is the first time 
the NCAA has allowed 
college's to sign high 
school recruits during 
the season. Supposedly, 
this is to take the 
pressure off the prep 

player having to go 
through the recruiting 
process while trying to 
concentrate on 
basketball and school. 

Dewberry, a 6-3 
forward-guard from 
Doyline High School at 
Doyline, La., is an all- 
purpose player who can 
score from anywhere on 
the floor. After seven 
games into the 1982 
season, he leads Doyline 
in scoring and 
rebounding, averaging 


PHONE 222 6005 


3040 Centenary Blvd. at Kinp Hgwy. - • 

17.4 points and 11.7 
rebounds per game. 

"Andrew scores and 
does it all for us," 
according to his high 
school coach Justin 
Sharp. "He plays a 
power forward and 
center for us. In high 
school he can play in the 
middle and I have been 
fortunate to use him 
there. But we're going 
to have to prepare him 
for college and play him 
some at the second 
guard so he can learn 
the face the basket." 

Last year Doyline 
compiled a 33-8 record 

and won the District 1-B 
title. They advance to 
the quarterfinals of the 
state playoffs, losing to 
Dubach High School 44- 
43 in the final seconds. 

"He is the perfect 
example of hqw the 
early signing date will 
benefit some players," 
Centenary head 
basketball coach 
Tommy Canterbury 
said about Dewberry 
signing with the Gents. 
"His mind was set on 
Centenary a long time 
ago and he just did not 
want to go through the 
hassel his senior year.

"We had Andrew in 
our basketball camp 
this past summer and 
he was voted the Most 
Valuable Player. He's 
an excellent player and 
student and can play 
either the big guard or 
small forward 

With the early signing 
date both coaches, 
Canterbury and Sharp, 
expressed positive 
feelings towards the 
early date. 

"By signing this 
position early, it allows 
us concentrate on the 
other two positions we 
want to fill and saves us 
money. Our budget was 
cut and it will help us in 
the long run," 
Canterbury said. 

"Myself, I think it's 
going to help take a lot 
of pressure off the high 
school seniors. They can 
commit to one school 
and not have to worry 
about the disruption. All 
they have to worry 
about is playing 
basketball and going to 
school. That's the way it 
ought to be," Sharp 

Coach Farrar said that 
they are better 
defensively up the 
middle— second 
baseman Jim Kubik and 
shortstop Jim Goldman 
will turn a lot of double 
plays, and Richard 
Sims is doing a fine job 
filling the' spot in left 
field vacated by David 

Coss. The team has a 
lot of depth and a better 
quality of pitchers than 
in the past: Jerry 
Winfield, Mark 
Mangham, George 
Fauber, Ricky 
Hardaway, and Ron 
Kelly all have E.R.A.'s 
under 3.00'. 

Offensively, the Gents 
are lacking in the long 
ball. There really isn't 

anyone who will hit a lot 
of homeruns, and to 
compensate, the team 
will play for more one- 
run innings. Even 
though there are no "big 
sticks," individual 

batting averages are 
running high: Jim 
Goldman, Jim Kubik, 
Billy Harwell, Lewis 
Parker, Richard Sims, 
and Rodney Smith are 
all above .400; Wayne 
Rathbun, Dean Cole and 
Steve Kolstead are all 
above .300. 

The Gents will start 
practicing for their 
spring season on Feb. 
1— and our clean-cut 
guys will return to us 
once again.

Pegasus: Hot off the press 

From the Wizard's Kettle 

By Bess Robinson 
Features Editor 

The fall 1982 Pegasus 
staff is proud to present 
what it considers to be 
the best issue of the 
campus literary 
Magazine to date. 

This semesters en- 
deavor is a 38-page 
medley of material- 
larger than any 
previous issue of the 

Pegasus VI features a 
w ider-than-ever 
s Pectrum of literary 
artistic works. The 
^gazine represents 

*e efforts of 18 diff 
fe rent artists and 
Wr iters. It is a collection 
°* five short stories, 

thirty poems, five 
photographs, and 
twelve pieces of artv 
work (including the 
cover illustration, by 
Talbot Hopkins). 

The publication 
differs significantly 
from its antecedents. 
The staff devoted 
considerable time to the 
visual aspect of this 
issue — to make sure it 
looks especially good. 
Also, there is a greater 
variety of material; 
more and lengthier 
prose pieces ; a different 
type of cover ; and more 
photography than ever 

The magaziner's staff 
is especially proud to be 

jie first to publish a 
short story by Mike 
Ragland. 4 The Strange 
Adventure of Mark 
O'Dell" represents the 
culmination of three 
years of effort. Pegasus 
Editor J. Alan Irvine 
calls Ragland's piece 
"an excellent story — 
one of publishable 
quality in the com-i 
mercial market." Ir- 
vine is also pleased with 
the work of several new 
contributors to the 
magaine. He predicts 
that these people "will 
be important figures on 
the literary scene in the 
next few years." 
Pegasus IV is 
scheduled to come out 
tomorrow — Dec. 10, 

1982. Because the SGA 
cut more than half of the 

magazine's proposed 
budget (see The 
Conglomerate, Thurs 
sday,Oct. 21, 1982, p. 5), 
there weren't enough 
funds to print as many 
copies as were 
originally intended. 
Available copies will be 
distributed to various 
places around campus, 
including the library, 
Jackson Hall, and the 
playhouse. If you read 
and enjoy Pegasus IV ; t 
or if you can't find 
copies of the issue, let 
your SGA Represent- 
ative know, and ask 
them to restore the 

* Greeks help the needy 

Admission to the latest 
joint fraternity/sorority 
party at Centenary 
College was two cans of 
food. A total of 200 cans 
were collected and given 
to Sister Margaret to 
distribute to needy 

families this Christmas. 
Groups participating 
were Kappa Sigma, 
Kappa Alpha, and Theta 

Chi fraternities, and Chi 
Omega and Zeta Tau 
Alpha sororities. 

In addition, the Kappa 
Sigmas made their 

annual trip to Shriner's 
Hospital on Wednesday, 
Dec. 8, with Santa Claus 
and a sackful of toys for 
the children. 

By J. Alan Irvine 
Christmas. Even 
though the dim fog of 
tests, papers, studying, 
finals, and a billion 
other end of the 
semester crises, that 
one, heart-warming fact 
manages to shine out. 

Indeed, some would 
claim that it has 
become impossible to 
ignore it. Beginning, it 
seems, the instant after 
we carved our 
Thanksgiving turkeys 
we've been bombarded 
by the bastardized, 
commercialized version 
of Christmas. Christ- 
mas ads fill radio and 
TV time* stories throw 
up the tinsel before the 
Great Pumpkin's been 
laid to rest, and on, and 
on. All of which prompts 
countless people to 
complain about how 
commercial Christmas 
has become, how big 
business has stolen it 
away even more 
thoroughly than the 
Grinch ever could, how 
the true meaning of it 
all has been lost 
forever. Indeed, the 
chorus of mourners and 
cynics has become as 
much a tradition of the 

season as anything else. 
Well, I for one, refuse to 
follow suit and join the 

Maybe a lot of people 
have "lost the spirit" 
and think it's all a 
frantic race to spend as 
much as possible and 
whatever. So what? If 
that's how they want to 
celebrate the season, so 
be it! I tend to agree 
with old Ebenezer 
Scrooge's observation 
on the matter — let 
them keep Christmas in 
their own way, and I 
shall keep it in mine. 

The season is simply 
too full of important 
things to worry about 
the backseat drivers of 
the holidays. Christmas 
cards need to be chosen 
— often an arduous task 
to find those that feel 
just right, but an en- 
joyable one. The scent 
of cut evergreen wafts 
through the air in 
sometimes unsuspected 
places. Suddenly the 
bright red berries on the 
holly bushes behind the 
shell demand notice, as 
do the quietly blinking 
Christmas lights in a 
dorm window as 
darkness slowly settles. 
Bright colored paper 

beckons cheerfully in 
the stores, only to 
reappear wrapped 
around some 
mysterious package 
half-hidden and carols 
evoking the quiet 
wonder of the season's 
essence. A special 
warmth fills the air if 
anyone cares to but feel 
it — a joy, a love 
crackling and blazing 
brighter than any fire 
ever could. Children 
come more fully alive 
than ever before — all 
children, not just those 
so defined by age. 
Smiles, laughter, a 
warm embrace... 

All these and more 
are the important 
things, the things worth 
noticing and reveling in 
— not the commercials, 
the plastic Santas, the 
tinseled smiles. But if 
the gloomy souls — the 
misery seekers wish to 
focus in on the glitter 
rather than the sub- 
stance, let them. Like 
-Scrooge's nephew, Til 
let anyone keep 
Christmas, or not, 
however they wish. But 
pardon me if I don't pay 
any attention when they 
proclaim Christmas 
dead. I know better.

Speaker's Forum 

To the student body, 

One of the most 
outstanding qualities of 
Centenary College is the 
warmth and frien- 
dliness of the student 
body. When visitors 
write or talk about our 
campus this is up 
permost in their mind. 
Without conscious effort 
we have created a 
unique quality that is a 
source of much 
gratification to students 
and visitors alike. 
Because this quality has 
come to us so freely we 
have perhaps 
overlooked its benefits. 
The school's nickname 
is the Gents and un- 
doubtedly the person 
who gave us this name 
was aware of the 
warmth and frien- 
dliness of the student 
body. This is a name to 
be proud of and a 
tradition to be upheld. 
Sometimes in the ex- 
citement of athletic 
events we overlook our 
responsibility to portray 
good sportsmanship to 
our opposing team. To 
our embarrassment 
we've had several 
complaints about 
student body behavior 

at the Yugoslavian, and 
Arkansas games. These 
people were our guest 
and we had a respon- 
sibility to make them 
feel welcome. They 
should have been 
treated with respect and 
dignity. Why not make 
Centenary the home of 
good sportsmanshp and 
fair play as well as 
outstanding athletic 
teams. We can do all 
and Centenary will be 
the beneficiary. So 
please help make all our 
guests feel welcome and 
help keep Centenary's 
fine tradition of good 
sportsmanship, fair 
play, and athletic ex 

Philip B.Howell 
(freshman senator) 

To the student body, 

We have a problem ! It 
involves a basic 
decision of whether we 
should have a sub or 
not. This year the 
S.G.A. has spent several 
thousand dollars to 
upgrade this facility for 
our enjoyment. Un 

fortunately their efforts 
have not proven very 
successful. The pinball 
and coke machines 
were broken into, the 
felt on the pool tables 
were carelessly ripped, 
holes were knocked into 
the ceiling by pool cues, 
and holes were knocked 
through the plaster of 
paris on the columns. 
Neither the S.G.A. nor 
the school can afford to 
keep paying for 
damages done to the 
sub. If we would all 
show a little care and 
responsibility with the 
facilities provided the 
money could be spent on 
further additions for our 
enjoyment. So its up to 
us (the student body) to 
help make our sub a 
place for everyone to 
enjoy. Please do your 
part! Sincerely, 
Philip B.Howell 
(freshman senator)

became extremely cold, 
turning our rooms into 
the "Great White 
North. ,, Now that the 
Louisiana balm has 
returned, we have 
neither heat nor cold. 
Why, we ask through 
our perspiring faces, 
can the temperature not 
be regulated in our 
dormitory rooms? We 
are paying almost $1000 
per year to live with our 
roommate in these 
cubicles and we can 
never have a comf 
fortable temperature. 
We find it next to im- 
possible to concentrate 
on our studies under 
these conditions. 

Uncle Ron says to 
keep our thermostats 
set on 74 degrees in 
summer and 68 degrees Q Tuesday 
in winter, but since we 
are having both seasons 
at once, maybe we could 
reach a happy median 
with the temps. We have 
noticed that Hamilton 
Hall is always at a 
comfortable temp- 
perature...So, how 'bout 
it, Don?

Enrollment report 



By Pierre Bellegarde 

Every year at the 
beginning of a new 
semester, whether 
spring or fall, Cen- 
tenary College receives 
a certain number of new 
students and the figures 
always differ from 
those of the preceding 
year. According to John 
Lambert, Director of 
Admissions and 
Financial Aid, last year 
at this time the total 
number of full-time 
undergraduates was 736 
while this year it is 772; 
as John puts it, "We're 
up this year and we are 
still in registration, 
which is an excellent 
tJUft *gn for us." 

The number 772 is just 
a preliminary one since 
registration is still 
going on. Therefore, 
after registration, 
which will continue until 
February 17, the Ad- 
missions Office will 
have a definite number. 
Adding part-time 
jj students, the total 
"umber is at 895 for both 
kst year and this year, 
indicating a slight 
^crease in part-time 
students from the fall, 
w hich is normal and 
ex Pected, said Lam- 
krt. The Admissions 
Office is very happy 
w ith these figures. 
*fed Lambert. 
Compared to the fall 
fester, enrollment is 
post always lower for 
;} e spring semester. 
^ er e are many reasons 
} behi nd that, said 
1 a m b e r t . Some 
Jj u dents have com- 
bed requirements for 
Jteir course study while 
* he rs have changed 
eir majors and have 
^ teci to attend college 
^sewhere. There are 
£ 0s e that withdraw 
^use of financial aid 
r* n Ses due to grades 
*j other factors and 
J 116 students leave for 
rs onal reasons, such 

as marriage. However, 
to compensate are the 
new students or those 
who have transferred 
from somewhere else to 
come to Centenary. 

Because of the tough 
economic situation 
going on nationwide, 
many private schools 
are experiencing 
declining enrollment . 
Centenary, however, 
has not experienced the 
same problem. Instead, 
compared to other 
schools, Centenary has 
reflected an almost 
constant increase in 
student registration 
these past few years. 
And there are chances 
that the increase might 
be slightly higher for 
this coming year. At the 
Admissions Office, the 
expectations are high 
for next year; they have 
a good reason for that 
because according to 
Lambert, the number of 
applications for next 
fall is 18 percent higher 
than last year and this is 
only for the freshman 
class. Lambert seems to 
be very confident about 
that as he adds, "We 
have more people to 
apply this year at an 
earlier time than last 

One of the key factors 
of Centenary Ad- 
missions Office's 
success is that Lambert 
and his staff are 
working very hard at 
what they are doing. 
They are, of course, 
aware of the current 
state of the economy 
which affects many 
students and their 
families. They are in- 
vesting a lot of energy in 
master planning to keep 
the enrollment always 
at a proper level with 
students of good quality 
and excellent caliber 
for whom a Centenary 
education will be 

Richardson appointed Dean of Business School 

By Bonnie Brown 
and Leigh Weeks 

After extensive 
searching, Barrie 
Richardson has been 
named Dean of the 
School of Business at 
Centenary College. 

Richardson was in- 
terviewed by the 
members of the 
Business Depa rt ment , 
Trustees, Centenary 
President Donald A. 
Webb, Dr. Dorothy 
Gwin, Dean of the 
College, and the Per- 
sonnel and Economics 
Policy Committee. 

responsibilties as Dean 
will be numerous. He 
will be in cahrge of all 
areas of the Business 
Department, including 
curriculum, faculty and 
community relations. 

The Illinois native has 
aspirations which he 
believes the Business 
School can accomplish. 
He hopes that within 5 
years people will regard 

Centenary as having 
one of the finest 
Business departments 
and "enterprises and 
graduate schools will 
seek our students." 
Richardson believes 
internships are helpful 
and would like to see 
program implemented 
in Dallas, Miami and 
London as well as the 

Dr. Richardson ob- 
tained a B.A. in History 
from Carlton College in 
Minnesota, and 
received his Masters of 
Business Ad- 
ministration and his 
D.B.A. in Business and 
Economics from In- 
diana University. He is 
presently the Professor 
and Chairman of the 
Department of 
Economics and 
Business at Hope 
College in Michigan. 
Prior to this, from 1968- 
1973 he was Vice 
President and Dean of 
the Faculty at Bethany 

College in West 
Virginia. He has held a 
number of positions at 
other colleges and 
universities, including 
part-time and summer 
University ap- 

He has been active in 
transport research for 
teh U.S. Army and 
Market research and 
sales development for a 
refining corpora tin. He 
is a member of Omicron 
Delta Epsilon and Beta 
Gamma Sigma and his 
international education 
included work in Great 
Britain, Africa and 
Asia. Dr. Richardson 
and his family ; his wife 
Lucille and his four 
children, two of whom 
are attending college in 
Ohio, have always 
resided in the north, but 
the four family mem- 
bers who are moving to 
Shreveport are 4 'en- 
thusiastic" about the 
new culture they will be 
living in. 

Dr. Barrie Richardson has been selected 
as Dean of the School of Business. 

A great deal of Dr. 
Richardson's en- 
thusiasm is generated 
from his belief in the 
Liberal Arts education 
and his trust in the 
"wonderful leadership 
existing in Dean Gwin 
and Dr. Webb." 

Concerning leaving 

Hope College, Dr. 
Richardson feels that 
part of his heart will 
always be there (at 
Hope) but he looks 
forward to coming to 
Centenary and cap- 
turing "that special 

Centenary to be in full bloom 

By Melonie Raichel 
While walking to and 
from class and the 
cafe', or trying to find a 
parking space in front of 
the girls' dorms, you 
may have found it a bit 
more of a task than 
when you left campus 
before Christmas. All of 
this is due to "The 
Master Plan for Cen- 
tenary College" which 
was unveiled to the 
press in the Centenary 
Room by Dr. Webb this 
past Monday. 

In 1980 a Campus 
Improvement Com- 
mittee was formed 
consisting of com- 
munity leaders in- 

terested in the hor- 
ticultural development 
of Centenary. 

The first step of this 20 
year plan is a $120,000 
rose garden to be 
located in front of 
Hamilton Hall. Hodges 
Garden has been funded 
by William and Sarah 
James, endowing the 
garden in memory of 
Addie Hodges, Mrs. 
James grandmother, 
and Magee Hodges 
James, Mr. James' 
mother. The interest 
from the fund will 
supply the payment to 
keep Hodges Garden 

The feature attraction 

of Hodges Garden is 
Centenary's very own 
breeded maroon rose to 
represent the schools' 
color, being shipped in 
from California. 

Another plan of many 
is a 40,000 scheme to 
better the entrance area 
to Centenary College. A 
better walk system will 
be installed for the 
students. Plants and 
shrubbery will be 
established so that the 
views seen upon en- 
tering the college will be 
much more pleasing to 
the eye. 

How did all this come 
about? Mr. Harry 
Balcom is the man 

behind the plan. He was 
quoted to have said, 
"This campus has the 
potential of being one of 
the most beautiful spots 
in Shreveport." The 
firm of Townsley I Sch- 
wab and Associated, 
Landscape Ar- 
chitects-land Plan- 
ners was hired to 
develop a Master Plan 
for the Centenary 
College campus. 

According to Dr. 
Webb, President of 
Centenary College, 
funds are obtained 
through donors; and 
construction is in ac- 
cord to the availability 
of these funds. 

The rose garden and 
embellished entrance 
are only two of many 
plans contained in 
Centenary's Master 
Plan. Dr. Webb is 
holding an open meeting 
next Monday, February 
14, for students, and the 
following Monday, 
February 21, for faculty 
to ask questions and 
express opinions etc. So, 
if you have questions to 
ask or statements to 
state, the opportunity is 
being given to you.

Why roses? Ill tell you why 

James Dormitory is 
the largest women's 
dorm on the Centenary 
College Campus. Webb 
Pomeroy is one of the 
most distinguised and 
professors on the 
Centenary faculty. 

One man is respon- 
sible for the T.L. James 
Dorm and for 
establishing the T.L. 
James Chair of 
Religion. The same also 
generously contributes 
to the Great-Teachers- 
Scholars Fund as well 
as the athletic fund. 

Now, some man has 
donated to our college, a 
$120,000 rose garden to 
be situated in front of 
Hamilton Hall. He has 
requested that "The 
Hodges Rose Gardens" 
be in the memory of his 
mother, Maggie Hodges 
James, and his grand- 
mother, Addie Reynolds 
Hodges. The project is 
endowed, which simply 
means the beauty of the 
garden will be main- 

The man who has 
given $120,000 out of his 
pocket is Bill James. He 
and his wife, Sarah, are 
supplying the funds for 
"The Hodges Rose 
Garden". Mr. James is 
the same man who gave 

us James Dorm and the 
endowed T.L. James 
Chair of Religion. 

Many have 
questioned, "Why 
Roses?" As evidenced, 
Mr. James has not 
given our campus 'just 
roses', but has actually 
changed the history of 
Centenary by his 
previous donation. He 
has contributed to 
student life, academics, 
and now the 
beautification of our 

Centenary certainly 
could benefit from 
improved conditions in 
the science labs or the 
student union building 
could stand im- 
provements, but who 
are we to criticize a 
sizeable donation to the 
college? No matter 
which department 
receives the money or 
the stipulations that 
accompany a donation, 
we should be thankful 
that a person, a com- 
pany, or a group is 
interested enough in 
Centenary College to 
give of themselves. 
Don't we, as educated 
students, owe these 
donors a great deal of 
respect? And isn't it 
only fair that we allow 

them to donate their 
money with request that 
it be used as they 

Somewhere, in the 
Shreveport -Bossier 
community, or beyond, 
there may be a person 
who will someday give 
us a swimming pool or 
help provide for soccer 
scholarships, or make 
renovations to Jackson 
Hall. But until this 
person surfaces, let us 
be glad there are people 
like Bill and Sarah 
James who have given 
us a dorm, a professor, 
and a rose garden. It 
works both ways, 
however. We have given 
the couple an op- 
portunity to see 
students, faculty and 
administration mem- 
bers, and visitors enjoy 
the sight of a rose 
garden featuring a 
specially breeded 
maroon rose — in 
memory of Mr. James' 
mother and grand- 
mother. We ac- 
complished this, merely 
by saying, "Yes, we'll 
accept your donation." 

That's why we have

Why we're not always happy 

There has been quite 
a lot of talk lately 
among Centenary co- 
eds and administrators 
about the purpose of the 
editorial page. The talk 
does not run rampant 
across campus but the 
talk exists. A mistaken 
belief is that this page is 
used to force beliefs 
onto the readers, 

It is the belief of the 

Editors that this page 
should be used to ex- 
press opinions and 
through these expressed 
opinions, raise thought.

editorials (and letters) 
is given the privilege to 
think about the

to formulate his or her 
own opinion, and (if 
compelled) to write a 
I would now like to 

respond to the headline. 
The content of this page 
is not always happy 
because of the simple 
fact that nobody is 
happy all of the time. 
Most of the editorials 
(and letters) are born 
out of concern over 
campus issues, issues 
that are not always 

This page should not 
be a public relation 
device for the college 

but a voice for the 
students, faculty, and 
staff. It should not be 
used to attract high 
schoolers to enroll at

used to attract

From The Wizard's Kettle 

By J. Alan Irvine 

Winter winds howl 
past the cold glass of the 
windows as I toss the 
bagload of books on my 
bed. This load 
represents the third pile 
of books I've had to buy 
so far. And that after 
the hassles of 
registration; which 
were fortunately not too 
many this year. Except, 
of course, this bit about 
anything after noon 
being considered late 
registration, with the 
accompanying fees and 
fines. Yes, I realize that 
the whole matter was 
set out in the class 
schedules, but how 
many people actually 
pick up one of those and 
read it until halfway 
through registration? 
Besides, Real Men don't 

use instructions. 

But despite the Ad- 
ministration's best 
efforts I somehow made 
it through, actually 
finding myself fully 
officially registered and 
equipped. My bank 
account looked as if 
Jesse James had made 
a friendly withdrawal, 
my arms ached from 
carrying shipments of 
books and my feet cried 
from standing so long in 
countless lines, but I 
was ready to begin. 
Very ready! 

Those of us who have 
taken interims on 
campus know how long 
and boring those weeks 
can be — the campus 
lies dead; hardly 
anyone is around; even 
the most creative minds 
run out of things to do. 

But no matter how bad 
times get they still seem 
positively giddy and 
wild compared to 
spending the entire six- 
week eternity at home, 
especially when you've 
spent only scattered 
weeks home at the past 
couple of years. There is 
a definite statute of 
limitations on your 
status as a visitor. You 
soon cease to be "on 
vacation," parents 
quickly begin to view 
you as a hired hand 
instead. "While you're 
home, would you 
mind..." becomes a 
familiar refrain. 
Friends, although glad 
to see you after so long, 
begin to wear thin. How 
often can you talk over 
old times, or tell 
hilarious stories about 
pjeople they've never 

out off 

met? Eventually the 
fact that you're still on 
vacation while they've 
been back in classes for 
weeks and weeks tends 
to irritate them ever so 
slightly. (I can't 
imagine why...) Every 
conversation starts with 
"You haven't gone back 
to school yet?!" One 
quickly memorizes the 
explanation of how 
interim doubles the 
holiday length. Even 
going to the movies 
loses its glamour. There 
are simply not enough 
films out to fill up six 
weeks of vacation -— 
believe me, I tried. 

Yes, holidays are a 
nice, welcome break. 
But it is great to be

Security system to stop theft 

"What is it?" "Where 
did it come from?" 
"Why is it?" "Is it 
dangerous?" Well, it's 
not dangerous as far as 
we can tell, but just 
what it is is a new 
security system in- 
stalled to improve 
library service by 
preventing theft of 
books from the Magale 

According to Jim 
Volny, Director of 
Library Services, 
steadily mounting book 
losses are now costing 
the library about $5000 
to $6000 a year. These 
losses will be greatly 
reduced by the new 
detection system. "The 
great percentage of 
patrons are honest, and 
would not intentionally 
take a book or 
periodical without 
checking it out," said 
Volny. "In most cases, 
it's just a matter of 
being forgetful. Of 
course, there are also 
those who will selfishly 
walk off with popular 
volumes and source 
materials in short 

supply," said Volny. 
"This is not only unfair 
and disappointing to 
other patrons, but 
strains the library 
budget as we attempt to 
replace lost material 
and also buy new 

So, to guard against 
forgetfulness and 
selfishness, workers 
from C-BARC are 
"sensitizing" library 
materials which will 
activiate an electronic 
device if patrons at- 
tempt to leave with 
materials that have not 
been properly checked 
out. A loud beeping 
indicates that a sen- 
sitized book is being 
carried out, and the exit 
gate automatically 

While preferring to 
keep the details of the 
system secret, Volny 
did say that it involves 
markers hidden in the 
book. At the checkout 
desk, a book check unit 
deactivates the signal 
when books are charged 
out, and reactivates the 
signal as the books are 


As an Army officer, you'll have many respon- 
sibilities. And some special privileges. 

That's in addition to Army benefits such as 
health care and up to 30 days earned vacation 
a year. And there may even be a chance to 
travel or live abroad. 

returned to the library. 
The system will not slow 
checkout procedures as 
the book can be deac- 
tivated in a fraction of a 
second by simply 
placing the book on the 
book check unit. 

"We know it is easy 
for a patron to inad- 
vertently mix up library 
material with personal 
belongings, particularly 
when he or she is in- 
volved in a major 
research project," 
Volny said. "For- 
tunately, this system 
will detect such 
material even when it is 
placed in briefcases, 
attache cases, or book 

Volny noted that book 
losses are a major 
expense for libraries 
everywhere, and losses 
are greatest among 
books which are in 
heaviest demand — 
including newer 
materials and reference 

"Since the new 
system does its job 
quietly and without 
fuss, it has good ac- 
ceptance among library 
patrons," he said. "And 
our library becomes a 
more valuable resource 
center because we are 
able to devote our ef- 
forts to assisting 
patrons and our budgets 
to new materials."

Overcoming math anxiety 

By Emily Carter 

Calcuphobics, take 
heart! During January 
interim, Centenary 
offered a class to help 
cure math anxiety. The 
course, taught ty Dr. 
Virginia Carlton, 
Chairman of the Math 
Department, featured 
Sheila Tobias as a guest 
lecturer. Ms. Tobias is 
the author of the books, 
Overcoming Math 
Anxiety, one of the texts 
used in the class. 

According to both the 
teacher and the 
students, the course was 
a success. All worked 
together to identity 
their fears of math and 
to find ways to become 
more confident. 

Cissi Fleming, a Math 
Anxiety class member, 
has had a phobia about 
math since early high 
school. "My family 
moved around a lot, and 
my math education was 
never consistent. My 
fears really hit me when 
I came in a month late 
to an advanced algebra 
class in ninth grade. I 
never caught up and 
never knew what was 
going on." 

everything tnat went 
on." Fleming also tried 
desperately to avoid 
dealing with the sub- 
ject. "I made bad 
grades and couldn't get 
out of the class. I even 
tried to flunk out," she 

Originally, Ms. 
Tobias had planned to 
write her book for the 
benefit of women, 
assuming that they 
were they were the only 
ones suffering from the 
anxiety. Later, she 
found that this was not 
the case. Beauford Frye 
said, "Men were sup- 
posedly the minority 
with this fear, but in our 
class the ration was 
fairly even with only a 
few more women than 

Frye, a Centenary 
psychology major and 
course member, added, 
"Everyone assumes 
that the anxiety is their 
own fault. They think 
they're dumb when it 
comes to math and for 
those who are good at it, 
it comes easily." 

Another class 
member, Jill Cornish, 
felt her anxiety stem- 
med from pressured 
study encounters with 
her father. "I'd always 
had problems with math 
and I'd ask my dad to 
help me. He is an 
engineer, and even 
though he was patient, 
he couldn't understand 
why I didn't catch on to 
his explanations." 
Many sufferers of math 
anxiety had the same 
trouble with parental 

As anxieties wor- 
sened, students tried to 
avoid math altogether. 
Cornish said, "I would 
not confront math. 
When I went to math 
class, I would mentally 
detach myself from 

The outcome ot the 
course was positive. 
Many student 
conquered their fears, 
and are going on to new 
mathematics courses. 
Beauford Frye says he 
will attempt Statistics 
in the '83 fall semester, 
and Jill Cornish is 
presently enrolled in a 
Finite Mathematics 
class. "I don't know how 
well my anxiety is 
overcome yet," she 
said, "but I think the 
class really helped." 

Dr. Carlton will 
present a report on 
Math Anxiety to the 
President's Round 
Table on March 16. 
Students are welcome to 

We would like to convey our appreciation for 
all the expressions of love and sympathy 
extended to us by the administration, staff, 
faculty, and students during the recent loss of 
our loved one.

Though they are on a 
probationary standing, 
theMardi Gras holidays 
are back on the Cen- 
tenary College calendar 
for the first time since 
the spring of 1979. 
Because Feb. 14 and 15 
are now recognized as 
school holidays, more 
people are expected to 
make the trip to New 
Orleans this year than 
in each of the past three 
years, when absences 
on these days were most 
often counted "unex- 
cused." I talked with 
four Mardi Gras 
veterans who suggested 
several ways to make 
the experience all the 
more safe and en- 
joyable — for first- 
timers as well as for the 
more seasoned 

First and foremost, be 
sure to have reserved a 
place to stay before you 
make the five-and-a- 
half to six-hoiir trip 
down. Patty Hamilton 
predicts that by this 
time, motels or hotel 
will be hard to find — 
but suggests that you 
try looking on the West 

Bank, or if you have a 
car or plenty of money 
for cabs, in New 
Orleans East. Ford 
Williams adds taht 
besides being hard to 
get, accommodations 
will doubtlessly be very 
expensive — perhaps 
well over $100 a night. 
Both Hamilton and 
Williams recommend 
staying with a friend 
who lives in the area. 

Janie Imperial, who 
has lived in New 
Orleans for 18 years, 
warns, "Be extremely 
careful in the crowds — 
they're nothing but a 
bunch of barbarians!" 
She and Hamilton agree 
that picking up 
doubloons and beads 
can be really dangerous 
since many people wear 
football cleats or shoes 
with razor blades in 
their sides, "to slash 
you for doubloons," as 
Imperial puts it. 

The "right" way to 
pick up grounded 
trinkets seems to be 
this: step on them as 
soon as they fall, and 
wait until the float 
passes by before you 
kneel down to pick them 

There are at least two 
"strategies" for ac- 
cumulating lots of 
Mardi Gras 
"treasures" in a 
relatively short time. 
Greg Blackman 
suggests that you go to 
some of the parades in 
the more outlying areas 
(he says the Krewe of 
Diana is a good one) 
where the people may 
be only one or two deep. 

Imperial and 
Hamilton both 
recommend taking 
plenty of reeb with 
which to barter. The 
ideas is to get a place at 
the beginning of the 
parade, and trade your 
"goods" for beads, 
doubloons, and in the 
case of the Zulu Parade, 
painted coconuts. A 
place near the begin- 
ning is preferable to one 
at the end, they say, 
because by the time the 
float finishes, everyone 
on it will be drunk 
anyway, so your reeb 
won't make any dif- 

A few more 
suggestions for safety: 
travel in groups of at 
least three (especially if 
you're there with just 



girls); don't get too 
close to the floats (since 
in its surge to grab for 
trinkets, the crowds 
could push you right 
underneath) ; and if you 
bring ladders, place 
them well away from 
the street ( where people 
are really crushed 
together), and don't tie 
them together. 

A Mardi Gras rookie 
may not — but should — 
realize that there are no 
bathroom facilities (one 
must order something 
in a bar or restaurant 
and use theirs); you 
can't go to the balls 
unless you are invited 
by someone in the 
Krewe (and even so, 
you're only allowed to 
watch the dancing); no 
glassware is allowed on 
the streets; and the 
famous all-Black Zulu 
parade makes a point 
never to follow the route 
it is scheduled to follow! 

So keeping all of this 
in mind, you should take 
advantage of the '83 
Mardi Gras holidays — 
go experience New 
Orleans; catch the 

parades (Rex, Zulu, 
Endymion, Bacchus, 
Comus, and the truck 
parade are some of the 
most popular, but check 
the local papers for 
others); take in the 
French Quarter during 
the day (when most 
people are hung over in 
their rooms, so there's 
not such a crush) , and 
"Have a good time!" as 
Patty Hamilton 
says... just be back for 
classes on Wednesday, 
or this privilege will be 
taken away!

Another year, another 
semester. Same old 
stuff you say? Well, not 
necessarily. Many 
things around Cen- 
tenary may be 
changing. For example, 
this year we have a 
Mardi Gras holiday. 
You better enjoy it 
because it may be taken 
off the calendar again. 
Note: if you want the 
holiday next year don't 
cut classes to extend 
your vacation; the 
faculty argued last year 
that if they gave us an 
inch, we would take 1.61 
kilometers. Let's prove 
them wrong. 

Another change we 
may soon face deals 
with fall rush. The 
student life committee 
is looking into the 
possibility of a second 
semester rush. Also 
interim may go. The 
faculty will vote on next 
year's calendar before 
long. (The fate of the 
Mardi Gras holiday will 
be decided at the same 
time.) And don't forget 
Pegasus, it may die 
beause A. the SUA 
doesn't care B. the SGA 
doesn't have the funds 

C. the Pegasus staff 
won't cooperate with 
the SGA, or D. the 
students don't care. You 

Not all the changes 
are controversial, but 
they can be em- 
barrasing. Have you 
been by the library 
lately? There is a new 
security system there, 
and I can assure you it 
works even when it's not 
supposed to. Finally, to 
round off the list of 
things that are changing 
around Centenary is the 
seniors. Precisely, their 
presence will be 
altered; they will be 
gone. In a few months 
the seniors will be 
handed diplomas, and 
sent out in the world to 
discover how bad the 
economy really is. 

So it looks like there 
are a lot of new things 
around Centenary, but 
maybe it really isn't 
anything new. As an 
ancient philospher once 
said, "There is always 
change." Unless of 
course you want a coke 
or to play video. By the 
way, welcome back.

The Best 

Off 1977 






By Veronica Ameis 
Has anyone heard of 
the new album entitled 
"William Teague Plays 
Willan, Franck, 
Ginastera? ' * Professor 
of Music William 
Teague has recorded 
the music on the organ 
at St. Mark's Episcopal 
Church in Shreveport. 
"That organ is con- 
sidered to be one of the 
finest in the world." 

Mr. Teague is a 
Gainsville, Texas, native 
and he attended 
Southern Methodist 
University and the 
Curtis Institute of 

Music, earning a 
Bachelor's degree in 
Music. He has been on 
the Centenary staff and 
on the staff of St. Mark's 
since 1948. He also holds 
membership in the 
American Association 
of University 
Professors, American 
Guild of Organists, 
American Hymn 
Society, Association of 
Anglican Musicians, 
Methodist Fellowship of 
Musicians, American 
Guild of English 
Handbell Ringers, and 
Royal School of Church 
Music. Professor 

Teague also spends 
time on the board of the 
Community Concerts, 
and Shreveport Opera 
Advisory Board. 

William Teague used 
his musical background 
to go through the 
lengthy process of 
recording "William 
Teague Plays Willan, 
Franck, Ginastera". 
The long procedure of 
taping, retaping the 
album, took time to 
make the microphones 
in the correct position 
and to make sure the 
organ was in tune 
continuously. Then the 

record jacket had to be 
designed — William 
Teague had help from 
two other men, Stan 
Williamson and Drew 
Hunter to make his 
record album complete. 
He went through the 
process of recording the 
album because he en- 
joys playing the organ, 
preserving its sound 
and sharing the music 
with as many people as 

The album will be sold 
at the bookstore for 
$9.00 and may be pur- 
chased at the St. Mark's 
Gift Shop or through 
Professor Teague. 

Centenary anticipates special homecoming 

By Alyce-Elise 

This coming Feb. 26, 
Centenary College will 
experience a very 
different Homecoming 
than it has in previous 
years. And what is so 
different about 1983? 
Quite simply, Cen- 
tenary is coming two of 
its most important 
events: Homecoming 
and High School 
Weekend! Not only will 
our campus be teaming 
with alumni from our 
past, it will also abound 
with prospective 
students for our future. 
It will certainly be a 
major event, and many 
activities are being 

One such activity is 
the revival of an old HC 
tradition — the 
decorating contest 
between the various 
fraternity and sorority 
houses on campus. One 
only need look through 
older editions of the 
Yencopin to find that 
this activity was an 
annual event, and was 
only recently discon- 
tinued. With the arrival 
of high school students, 
however, it will be an 
excellent opportunity 
for the Greeks to show 
their school spirit and 
involvement on cam- 

The entire campus 
will participate in a pep 
rally sponsored by the 

cheerleaders in the 
early afternoon, where 
the winners of the House 
Decorating Contest will 
be announced, and the 
clues for the annual $100 
hunt will be given. That 
evening, there will be a 
formal dinner a la caf — 
complete with white 
table cloths, fresh 
flowers, candlelight, 
and soft music. The 
actual HC game will 
begin at 7:45 p.m. and 
will include all the 
excitement of the an- 
nouncement of the 
Court, and the crowning 
of the 1983 Homecoming 
Queen. Immediately 
following the game, 
high school students, 
alumni, and our 

students will join 
together in the SUB for 
the Homecoming High 
School Weekend dance. 
It promises to be a good 
time for all involved. 

The SGA and the 
Admissions Office are 
responsible for these 
extensive plans. We 
encourage everyone to 
become involved in 
these activities, and to 
help the high school 
students feel at home 
here at Centenary as we 
anticipate the new 
facets and changing of 
Homecoming '83. 

The MCAT registration forms are in. This test is given April 9th and registration materials must be

L.T.J. Gourmet 

By Larry Morse 
Tina Hackett 
Jenny Leop 

During the course of 
the semester, L.T.J. 
Gourmet will critique a 
restaurant in the 
Shreveport-Bossier City 
area, in each issue. We 
will visit eating 
establishments of 
various price ranges 
that are both familiar 
and unfamiliar to 
Centenary students. 

This week, L.T.J. 
Gourmet visited a 
favorite among 
Shreveporters ; Seven 
Sisters Restaurant, 
located in the Square. 
Seven Sisters is 
managed by Charles 
Lombardino and David 
Mock. The atmosphere 
here is an impressive 
cross between the late 
Victorian style and the

Mini Movie Review 

By Melonie Raichel 

For those of you who enjoy action and 
excitement with a lot of far-out comedy, "They 
Call Me Bruce" is a movie you should hot miss. 
"They Call Me Bruce" is written along the same 
lines as "Airplane I" and "Airplane II." So if you 
want intellect and deep discussion, save this 
movie for another time. But, if you want to just 
sit back and laugh, don't miss "They Call Me

Melville Associates 

The Centenary Ladies 
Gymnastic team is once 
again in the midst of a 
winning season. The 
Ladies have achieved 
this winning record 
without the help of one 
of last years top com- 
petitors, Margot Todd 
Evans, who is red- 
shirting this year. This 
year's championship 
team consists of 
returning A 1 1 - 
Americans Jennifer 
Forshee, Janet Stevens, 
Jill Brown, Susan 
Gibson, Lisa Greenhaw 
and three new com- 
petitors Katrina 
Kellogg, Jessica Soileau 
and Diana Marble. 

The Ladies opened the 
1983 season with a win 
against the University 
of Southern Arkansas, 
135.90-121-20, Janet 
Stevens captured first 
place in the all-around 
with a 34.20 score. Susan 
Gibson was third with a 
33.85. Katrina Kellog 
came in fifth in the all 
around with a 31.40. 
Kellogg captured first 
place on vault with an 
8.8, Stevens won on the 
uneven bars with an 8.7. 

Brown captured first on 
balance beam with an 
8.7 and Gibson won on 
the floor with an 8.85. 

The Centenary 
Gymnasts won their 
second meet of the 
season exercising a 
170.0-155.20 victory over 
Memphis State 
University. Memphis 
State is affiliated with 
the NCAA Division I 
ranks, therefore the 
Ladies used five scores 
instead of the required 
four by the NAIA to 
count towards the final 
team score. Adding the 
highest four scores, the 
Ladies defeated 
Memphis State 138.10- 
127.10. Brown captured 
first place in the all- 
around with a 35.00. In 
the individual events 
Forshee, making her 
first appearance despite 
competing with a pulled 
lower back muscle, won 
on vault with a 8.75, 
Stevens on bars with a 
8.70, Brown on bars with 
a 9.20, and Gibson on 
floor with a 8.95. 

In the first triangular 
meet of the season, the 
Ladies defeated Texas 

Women's University 
and the University of 
Southern Arkansas 
136.30-125.65. In the all- 
around competition 
Centenary's Brown 
captured first place 
with a 34.35, while 
Forshee was a close 
second with a score of 
34.30. In the individual 
events the Ladies on* 
again dominated the 
field with Brown win- 
ning on vault with 8.65, 
Stevens on bars with an 
8.65, Forshee on beam 
with an 9.0 and Kellogg 
on floor with a 9.2 

The Ladies next 
traveled to the 
University of Texas at 
El Paso where they 
completely over- 
whelmed the com- 
petition 139.35-64.60. 
Brown and Forshee 
shared first place in all- 
around with their score 
of 34.60. In individual 
competition on vault 
Brown tied Elizabeth 
Blake of UTEP for first 
place with a score of 
8.90, Forshee came in 
first on beam with a 
score of 9.0. On bars 
Stevens tied for first 

with Blake with a score 
of 8.65, and on floor 
Kellog tied with Blake 
for top honors with a 
score of 9.2. 

The Gymnasts' five 
year winning streak 
came to an end as the 
Ladies traveled to the 
University of Arizona 
and went down to defeat 
139.65-141.95. The loss 
came at the hands of a 
team that is ranked 
third in the nation. In an 
all-around competition 
Stevens placed third 
with a score of 35.25, 
and Forshee fifth with a 
score of 34.75. 

Even though the 
Ladies suffered their 
first setback in five 
years, head gymnastics 
coach Vannie Edwards 
was very happy with the 
Ladies' performance. 
Edwards said, 
''Records were made to 
be broken and we will 
just have to start 
another one." 

After five meets the 
Centenary Ladies are 3- 
1 in dual meets and 1-0 
in triangular meets. 
Forshee leads the 
Ladies in the all-around 

with a 34.55 average. 
She is closely followed 
by Brown with an 
average of 34.47, 
Stevens with an average 
of 34.42, Gibson with an 
average of 33.64, and 
Kellogg with an average 
of 32.00. 

The Ladies will 
compete for the last 
time this year in the 
Dome Saturday night at 
7:30 as they take on 
Auburn University.

you could lose your 
federal financial aid. 

As part of the con- 
tinuing efforts to catch 
young men who have 
W yet registered for 
^ draft, the federal 
government recently 
jjtfed that eligibility for 
^cial aid will now 

depend on registration 
for the draft. The ruling, 
which goes into effect 
June 30, states that no 
male 19 years old or 
older, within the range 
of registration, will be 
granted any federal aid 
until he registers. 

If the young man is 
attending school when 
he turns 19, his aid will 
be suspended until the 
appropriate agencies 

are notified of his 
registration, possibly 
several weeks. Just 
what the student and 
school do until this 
notification arrives is 
not set forth. Jeff Teter, 
of Centenary's Office of 
Financial Aid, states 
that Centenary will 
probably accept the 
student's word that he 
has registered and thus 
continue aid until 

notified otherwise. 

The ruling is 
currently being 
challenged on several 
counts by various 
groups hoping to have it 
declared un- 
constitutional before it 
goes into effect. 

For more information 
on this ruling and its 
effect on your aid, 
contact the Office of 
Financial Aid. 

W Money Available For Students- 

Students in need of 
^ancial aid for next 
fa U should begin now to 
JjWy for the thousands 
* scholarships being 
pered by private 
^ndations, trade and 
Clvic groups and other 

.^here are over 25,000 
av Ife rent scholarships 
t liable, according to 
s e director of The 

Scl°l arshi P Bank 
^ n °Urships are 

Vail *ble from tax 

exempt foundations that 
are required by law to 
make a certain amount 
of financial aid 
available each year in 
order to maintain their 
tax-exempt status. 

The Scholarship Bank 
matches students with 
available aid and sends 
the student a print-out 
of the private financial 
aid sources that appear 
to be most promising for 
that student. Each 
student may receive up 

to 50 sources of aid. 
Most scholarships have 
a value of ap- 
proximately $1,000, and 
many are renewable 
annually. Financial 
need is only one of 
several criteria to 
receive aid. According 
to The Scholarship 
Bank, major in college, 
occupational goal, 
geographic preference, 
military service of the 
student or his parent, 
employer, union 
membership, academic 

standing, ethnic 
heritage, and whether 
the student is interested 
in work-study, loans, 
essay contests and the 
like all determine 
eligibility for aid. 

Students wishing to 
receive a print-out 
should send a stamped, 
business-size self ad- 
dressed envelope to The 
Scholarship Bank, 10100

Centenary Trustees To Head 
GTSF Drive 

Shreveport oil men 
William G. Anderson 
and Don H. Duggan will 
chair Centenary 
College's 1983 Great 
Fund. The an- 
nouncement was made 
recently by Dr. Donald 
A. Webb, president of 
the college. 

Anderson, a former 
Centenary student and 
member of the Board of 
Trustees, will be the 
active chairman of the 
drive, while Duggan, an 
honorary alumnus and 
member of the Board of 
Trustees, will serve as 
honorary chairman. 

The 1983 goal has been 
kept at $750,000, the 
amount raised last 
year. "The College is 
working extremely hard 
to hold the line on all its 

operating expenses, 
which are funded by 
monies raised in the 
Great Teachers- 
Scholars Fund," said 
Anderson. "With our 
proven record of sound 
money management, 
we will continue to 
provide quality 
education and services 
within this budget." 

Anderson, co-owner of 
Anderson Oil & Gas, has 
also served on Cen- 
tenary's Alumni Board 
and Gents Club Board. 
He is active in 
organizations and a 
number of civic groups 
including the March of 
Dimes (He was the 
recipient of the G. 
Peyton Kelley Award in 
1974); Goodwill In- 
dustries; Boy Scouts of 
America; the YMCA, 

and Shreveport Rotary 

Duggan, chairman of 
last year's successful 
fund, is founder and 
president of Duggan 
Machine Co. He is a 
member of the Caddo 
Levee Board, 
Shreveport Chamber of 
Commerce Board, 
Committee of 100, and 
the International 
Association of Drilling 
Contractors for which 
he has served as

Letter To The Editor 

Dear Editor: 
Why A Rose Garden? 

It has been remarked 
throughout history that 
people have tendency to 
look upon their own 
situations and 
idealistically while 
holding all others to the 
scornful abrasion of 

So let us be 
realistic... just once. 

Perhaps it would be 
too coldly realistic to 
state that the in- 
stil Id t ion and 
dedication of the rose 
garden is a political 
maneuver to ensure the 
financial as well as 
political loyalties of the 
parties donating the 
impress:\ e sum of 
mone\ n<juired to 
construct such a living 
memorial. Perhaps. Yet 
a mere rose garden 

today may assure 
financial security in the 
future. Not that the ones 
responsible for the 
payment of this 
monument of hor- 
ticultuary fame will be 
the ones to save this 
institution from possible 
demise. However, they 
may be a part of that 

So as naive children to 
the mature ways of our 
world, let us sit back 
and take note. This 
issue is a game for the 
adults although they use 
the same bull-riddened, 
papering, ego-bloating 
techniques we, the 
children, have used. Yet 
in this situation such 
methods are entitled 
"good business". 

I guess we just have 
little more growing up 
to do.

While fooling around 
in the Physics Lab 
recently, Allison Bailes 
managed to ac- 
cidentally create a warp 
in the space-time 
continuum contacting to 
a point approximately 
50 years in Centenary's 
future. The warp un- 
fortunately proved to be 
only temporary, but 
before it completely 
swallowed itself up, we 
managed to retrieve as 
an artifact from the 
future, a glimpse of 
what is to be — a small 
guidebook for future 
visitors touring the 
future college campus. 
Extracts from this 
guidebook follow: 

Welcome to CEN- 
Official Beauty Spot of 
the Ark-La-Tex. 

All of us here at 
beautiful Centenary 
Gardens wish to 
welcome you to our 
newly opened facilities 
and invite you to tour 
them at your leisure. 
Here at the tour's start, 
you see the world 

famous Memorium 
Memorial Gates — two 
25 foot titanium steel 
columns stabbing up 
into the sky, great hot- 
pink fingers topped with 
a swirl of flashing neon 
lights; erected by H.I. 
Memorium is memory 
of himself. Once asked 
why he donated the 
erection to the gardens, 
Memorium reportedly 
replied, "well, it 
seemed like a good idea 
at the time..." 

Over to your right you 
will see the ruins of old 
Jackson Hall, which 
lead a touch of eerie, 
Gothic atmosphere to 
the gardens. Despite 
many stories of spectral 
inhabitation, the 
mysterious lights 
frequently seen in and 
around the decaying 
pile are really only 
students attending late 
night classes. Our 
Biology professor 
estimates that the 
colony of bats infesting 
the ancient skeleton is 
the largest such colony 
in the South. 

Other such ruins dot 

the gardens, but not 
possessing the elegance 
of a classical ruin which 
helps Jackson Hall fit in 
so well with the master 
design, they have been 
tastefully hidden in the 
center of the numerous 
groves of trees and 
shrubbery, well out of 
sight and do not detract 
from the beauty of the 

At this point we would 
like to remind our 
guests to please remain 
on the sidewalks and off 
of the flower beds. 
Sidewalks have been 
placed every ten feet or 
so and connect all 
conceiveable points on 
campus to preserve our 

Here in the center of 
the gardens you will 
notice our spreading, 
perfectly tended 
bowling green. The 
installation of this lawn 
represented the last 
phase of our highly 
successful program to 
remove all the unsightly 
parking lots con- 
taminating the grounds 
and replace them with 


The phenomenon of Centenary is silence. This week, only one letter to the 
editor was submitted by press time. Is life so dull that nothing deserves 
comment? Or, are the students so inarticulate that they cannot verbalize 
their thoughts? Realizing that these are not the only possible explanations, 
I hesitate to refer to student apathy, a trite refrain on this campus. 

Silence. The world is in turmoil. The nation is dividing into camps of 
liberals and conservatives, old and young, left and right, right and wrong - 
and Centenary is silent. Social, political, ecological, philosophical debates 
are raging every where... but here. Is silence bad? Is noise good? Some 
geologists might answer, no; noise pollution is a severe problem indeed, 
and any alleviation from it is to be commended. 

Nevertheless, out of disagreement comes compromise and change. Have 
we already made life so good that we cannot hope to change it for the 

Our Silence tends to imply contentment. Our contentment with 
everything would imply insensitivity. Are we totally insensitive to our 
environment? Are we unconcerned with everything 0 Is there nothing left to 
do? Have we nothing more to say? 

Taken from a 1!K>8 issue of The Centenary C onglomerate

To your left you will 
note the recently 
renovated Patron's 
Union Building which 
houses, the offices of the 
Garden's official 
publication The 

^Conglomerate. This 
journal, once run by 
students, was taken 
over by the Garden's 
staff some years ago 
after they decided that 
since the publication's 
most important purpose 
is attracting more funds 
to the upkeep and- ex- 
pansion of the Gardens, 
only people most in 
touch with the lofty 
ideals of the project 
should be allowed to 
participate in 
publishing its official 
journal. The 
Conglomerate is now a 
highly successful 
publica tion oDera ting

maxim "Bad News is

I love Country & Western 

" Fatbacks Capture Coveted C&W Title 

By Leigh Weeks 
As I stood staring at 
m y sparse wardrobe 
one morning, I won- 
dered if my boots would 
match the white cor- 
deroys I wanted to 
wear. As I drove into 
Shreveport from 
Haughton each mor- 
ning, I listened to 
KRMD, KWKH, and 
any other country 
station my car radio 
would pick up. And just 
the other day I read an 
article on Floyd Cramer 
in a local weekly paper. 
Back in December I 
would have glanced at 
the picture of the 
smiling country singer 
and turned the page. 
"The Psychology of 
Country and Western 
Music" certainly turned 
my life around and 
opened up my eyes! 

I have to be honest, 
though. I was no doubt 
the first person to sign 
up for the interim 
course offered by 
psychology professor, 
Dr. Mark Dulle. I have 
always enjoyed 
listening and dancing to 

answer: 54. From that 
day forward, we met in 
the Student Union 

I was under the im- 
pression that I held a 
considerable amount of 
knowledge when it 
came to C&W music. 
Did I ever learn 
otherwise. For 
example, Dr. Dulle, 
himself an avid fan, 
gave us the history of 
C&W music beginning 
with the first record; 
"Sally Goodin," a tune by 
Uncle Eck Robertson 
and Robert Gillian, 
recorded in the RCA 
label in 1922. We learned 
that Vernon Dalhart 
was the first singer to 
sell a million records; 
how the Nashville sound 
originated, and that in 
1929, the Coon Creek 
Girls were the first 
country act to perform 
in the White House. 
Patsy Cline crooned 
"Faded Love" to us, 
and Hank Snow told us 
of his travels in "I've 
Been Everywhere." . 
Tex Ritter (father of 
Three's Company's 
John Ritter) confessed 

Dr. Dulle taught us things we 
couldn't learn in a honker tonk' 

C&W music, so 
naturally the course 
seemed like an ideal 
way to spend my week- 
day mornings. 
I wondered, as I sat in 
^e classroom on the 
first day of class how 
m any of my fellow 
Centenary students had 
trolled in the course. 
After every desk in the 
room was occupied and 
^nie students lounged 
011 the floor, I had my 

his problem to us with 
"Rye Whiskey," and 
Slim Whitman, a former 
mailman from 
Shreveport yodeled, 
"Bandara Waltz." 

Yes, we even had a 
test over the many (15 
pages in my notebook) 
facts Dr. Dulle 
presented us with. The 
multiple choice was a 
snap, but identifying the 
titles or the singers of 
the songs he played was 

a little more 

We moved on to ex- 
plore the actual 
psychology involved in 
country and western 
music. We listened to 
cheatin' songs; "She's 
Up to Her Old Tricks 
Again, and "Cheater's 
Prayer"; drinkin' 
songs; "Whiskey and 
Gin," and "Barstool 
Mountain" to name a 
few. We heard Conway 
Twitty sing a love-plus 
song in "I'd Love to Lay 
You Down" and with 
"Angel Flying Too 
Close to the Ground," 
Willie Nelson showed us 
love-minus. Other 
categories explored 
were social issue songs, 
train and truck songs. 

The class included 
dance lessons as well. 
Led by Betsy Body, the 
meetings could have 
been called, "Country 
Dancing Made Easy in 2 
Lessons." We cotton- 
eye Joed around the SUB 
and stepped all over our 
partners' feet. 

Dr. Dulle determined 
whether we students 
passed or failed the 
three week course by 
our first test, and 
analysis of 15 C&W 
songs, which included 
main themes, defense 
mechanisms, and 
overall rating. 

The third factor at- 
tributing to our grade 
was an assignment 
which ended up like 
talent day for the fifth 
graders. The class was 
to divide into small 
groups and perform

some type of skit, 
presentation or song. 
The winning group 
would receive four 
tickets to the David 
Frazzell and Shelly 
West concert which was 
scheduled for the end of 

I teamed up with 
Peggy Middleton, who 
was as equally reluctant 
to do the project. As a 
way of "escaping' ' we 
joined another group 
consisting of Paul 
McDowell, Helen 
Jernigan, Becky Timbs 
and Allan Todd. They 
were going to write and 
C&W song. We were 
scheduled to perform on 
a Thursday. On 
Tuesday we took the 
easy way out by 

near, the four female 
Fatbacks lost it to 
giggles also. After we 
sang our last doo-wah, 
we scurried to our seat, 
relieved it was over. 

As for the other 
groups, well; two 
groups wrote their own 
lyrics and music and 
were accompanied by 
guitars, drums and a 
piano. "Wow!" said the 
Fatbacks. What talent! 
Dolly Parton was in- 
terviewed on "Meet 
Nashville," and sang 
"Here You Come 
Again/' At least a 10 on 
my score sheet for 
comic appeal alone. A 
presentation on the life 
of Merle Haggard was 
given as well as one on 
Hank Williams, Jr. and 

two for second, and one 
for third place. Peggy 
and I discussed our 
decision and discovered 
we had chosen the same 
top three. What I am 
hesitant to admit is that 
neither of us voted for 
the "Fatbacks." The 
remaining members of 
our group were 
astonished. But we were 
insistent. We felt there 
were three other groups 
who devoted more time 
to their projects. 
Besides, how could a 
song about dieting win 
over "Your Selfish 
Pride" and original 

As Dr. Dulle 
tabulated the votes, 
Peggy and I crossed our 
fingers in the hope that 

"You Really Screwed Up My Life" 
May Soon Be Topping The Charts 

we deserved to win? 
Peggy and I were 
dumbfounded. If we had 
actually believed we 
would have won, we 
would have voted for 
ourselves. Meanwhile, 
Allan, Becky, Helen and 
Paul were overjoyed. 
They, who had been 
faithful and believed in 
"You Really Screwed 
Up My Life." It was 
they who attend the 
concert, not because of 
our backstabbing, 
though. Peggy and I had 
relented our chances 
since we had joined the 
group late. 

I've heart talk that 
Grand '01 Opry will be 
in Louisiana soon to 
audition aspiring 
musicians and singers. 
Is it possible? Could it 
be that Nashville is 
ready for a song with 
lyrics such as: 

borrowing Kenny 
Rogers, "You 
Decorated My Life." 
We somehow strayed 
from the traditional 
mild country tune and 
ended up with a 
ridiculous ballad 
dieting. After a total of 
an hour and a half of 
practice, we took the 
stage; as Skinny 
Rogerzs, Wirey Nelson 
and the Fatbacks. With 
nothing but a tape 
recording of the original 
song, we performed, 
4 'You Really Screwed 
Up My Life." The 
audience laughed, just 
as we had hoped, but as 
the last chorus drew 

the Louisiana Hay ride. 
As far as preparation, 
these three groups had 
it made. D and Gang, 
sang a touching tale of 
"The Lonely Cowboy" 
and Blondie and the Bud 
Boys" bared their souls 
in "You Can't Learn 
Country and Western in 
No School." To round 
off these and other 
presentations, one 
group summed up the 
entire three week class 
with a slide presen- 
tation of the history of 
C&W music that was 
both informative and 
amusing. Then the 
ballots were cast ; three 
points for first place, 

we wouldn't place in the 
top three. Not because 
we didn't want to win, 
but because we didn't 
want our lack of support 
to make a difference 
between first and 
second place. Blondie 
and the Bud Boys took 
third. Band Ana and 
"Your Selfish Pride" 
captured second place. 
Peggy and I glanced at 
one another with an 
understanding smile; 
whew! we're out of the 
race." "...And first 
place with 55 points is 
not us! You mean this 
class of supposedly 
cultured people thought

All in all the interim 
was just plain fun. And 
Dr. Dulle believes he 
accomplished what he 
set out to do; create a 
new world for those who 
previously didn't realize 
the importance of

The Grand Illusion 

Suspended from the 
ceiling, secured by two 
straps, Doug Yelverton 
performs the work he 
enjoys doing the most; 
cutting hair. 

This practice is not a 
new one, although the 
Shreveport area may 
regard this method of 
hairstyling as un- 

Yelverton, the 23 year 
old co-owner of the 
"Illusions" salon began 
his topsy-turvey 
hairstyling as 
"basically a rebuttal." 
Many hair designers 
were claiming they 
could produce a better 
haircut for their clients 
if they hung them up- 
side down. Yelverton 
realized this as a 
gimmick and decided to 
go one step further; he 
hung himself upside 
down. Between 200 and 
300 newspapers picked 
up the story and the 
picture of Yelverton in 
action, including "The 
Shreveport Journal" , 
and the "scandal 
sheets", "Globe" and 
"The Star." 

Don't be startled into 
thinking ''Illusions" 

caters only to those who 
desire extreme hair- 
styles. According to 
Yelverton, "we try to 
establish a difference in 
hair, something out of 
the ordinary for 
Shreveport." He adds, 
however, that although 
the salon keeps up with 
the latest in hair 
fashion, they do basic, 
traditional cuts. Their 
market is mainly a 
younger group, age 16- 
28; those who like to 
"stay up with fashion." 

"Illusions" is open 
Monday through 
Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. 
and is located on Line 
Avenue. Yelverton and 
his staff provide many 
facets of styling besides 
hair care, including 
make-up and apparel, 
giving proof to 
Yelverton's definitions 
of his salon as an 
"image" studio. 

By the way, Yelverton 
has only hung himself 
from the ceiling on a 
few occasions, for 
publicity stunts. 
Hoever, if the price is 
right, he could be 
persuaded to hang from 
the ankles and cut your 
hair in his unusual 

Aspiring Cartoonists 
Take Note 

Some student car- 
toonist or comic strip 
artist at Centenary 
College has a chance to 
win considerable fame, 
a little fortune, and even 
a contract with a 
national feature syn- 

All these are prizes in 
the 1983 Campus Car- 
toonist contest being 
conducted for student 
artists at every U.S. 
college and university. 

The sponsor is 
Tribune Company 
Syndicate, fourth 
largest in the U.S. It 
distributes comics, 
editorial cartoons, and 
other features to 2,000 
newspapers across the 
U.S. and around the 

Each of the 10 winners 
will receive $500 plus a 
chance to qualify for a 
contract with the 

Entries may consist 
of up to 12 comic strips, 
12 editorial or humorous 
cartoon panels, or both. 

The deadline for 
mailing is March 7. 
Entry requirements are 
available at the office 
The Conglomerate 

The syndicate is 
looking for new talent, 
according to Robert S. 
Reed, its president. 

"Bright creative 
talent, young men and 
women who well may be 
attending college 
somewhere today," he 
said, "can be the syn- 
dicate stars of 

The campus was the 
starting point for many 
of today's most famous 
cartoonists, Reed 
pointed out. Jeff 
MacNelly, creator of 
"Shoe," started at the 
University of North 
Carolina, and Garry 

"Doonesbury" was born 
when he attended Yale. 

If there's another of 
these talented artists, 
"we'd like to help that 
person become famous 
nationally," Reed said.

Walker and Pop Psychology 

We live in the age of 
pop psychology. We 
have been told how to be 
our own best friend, 
everything we always 
wanted to know about 
sex, and the location of 
our erroneous zones. 
We've learned the 
games people play, that 
we're okay, how to pull 
our own strings and win 
through intimidation. If 
we're tired from looking 
out for number one, we 
can cool out with TM, 
TA, EST or NLP. Un- 
fortunately, since most 
psychiatric advice 
books or programs have 
been incomplete, all this 
self-help data hs led to 
confusion, if not actual 

Alas, one man has 
attempted to clear up 
some of the confusion of 
our era through his new 
book Everybody's 
Guide to Emotional 
Well-Being. The author- 
psychiatrict, J. Ingram 
Walker, wrote 
Everybody's Guide not 
to provide advice, but to 
present a sensible map 
to the ever-expanding 
territory of emotional 

"I wrote this book 
because so many of my 
friends kept asking me 
questions about 
psychiatry," said Dr. 
Walker, an assistant 
professor of psychiatry 
at the Duke University 
Medical Center and 
Chief of the Mental 
Hygiene Clinic of the 
Veterans A d -

looked for again in the 
days soon approaching. 

"Don't be late," 
warned the man behind 
the moustache. "The 
plan leaves at precisely 
8:04 in the morning — 
with or without you." 
And so concluded the 
ten RIGOROUS hours of 
classroom study that 
preceded the trip to 
D.C. AndD.C. it was — 
that is, the man behind 
the moustache. 

Dr. Christensen, 
"Harold" to his wife; 
"Doctah C" to the rest 
of us, was the humble 
genius... the fearless 
leader... the guy to 
blame for all this mess! 
It was through his ef- 
forts a year earlier that 
a careful bridge was 
crossed — a bridge few 
have successfully 
conquered. I am 
speaking of the struc- 
ture that exists to cover 
the gap between the 
aloof faculty and the 
wayward students. Not 
necessarily a pioneer in 
this area, Doc tan C has 
definitely earned his 
place in this unique hall 
of fame and in the 
hearts of his students. 
Having said enough 
praise to ensure 
straight "A's" in all my 
remaining economic 
courses, I will press on 
with the topic at hand. 

The 8:04, the pride of 
American Airlines, 
bowed its head and 
crawled out of 
Shreveport at 10:37. 
"Ice on the wings and no 
equipment to dissolve 
it" headed the list of 
excuses for our sluggish 
departure. The flight 
out of Dallas to 
Washington was due to 
leave at 10:51. Odds we 
wouldn't make it! 

"I don't need this 
Joann! I don't need 
this! " steamed the good 
doctor upon learning 
that our "confirmed" 
reservations on a later 
flight to Baltimore were 
anything but that. 
Through a series of 
"talks" that rivaled the 
Hostage negotiations in 
Iran, Dr. C. procured 
boarding passes for all 
but four of our thirty 
member group. Being 
no fool, Mrs. C hopped 
on the plan and left Doc 
with a troupe composed 
of Kirke Goff, Adam 
Harbuck, and myself to 
stick it out. And stick it 
out we did — right into 
four vacancies in First 
Class, afforded us by 
the strong boot of 
American Airlines... our 
good friend ! A mix-up of 
boarding passes left me 
with Patsy Fraser's but 
that was my little 
secret. Sorry, Patsy! 

A pleasant trip for 
some (!), we at last 
reached Baltimore. 
After a short bus ride 
via the "Toby Ex- 
press", we arrived at 
the Baltimore Civic 
Center and immediately 
set about in our quest 
for knowledge. The 
evening's indoor soccer 
match proved a fair 
match for our in- 
lligence. Soon 
thereafter we were 
shuttled to our hotel in 
Silver Spring, 
Maryland. The nation's 
innkeeper became our 
home base for the en- 
suing week. 

The Metro, 
Washington's subway 
system, was the main 
transportation link 
between the hotel and 
downtown Washington. 
We'd just hop on and 
within minutes be

Aside from four 
assigned sporting 
events (a soccer game, 
two basketball games, 
and one hockey game), 
the D.C. agenda was 
wide open for sight- 
seeing. Day after day, 
much to my surprise, 
we'd all rise and shine 
(?) and spread out in 
various groups to 
canvas the sights of the 
city. As a group we 
toured the White House 
and the Bureau of 
Engraving. All other 
sightseeing was done in 
smaller groups. I was 
pleased with our class in 
that everyone got out 
early everyday. We had 
no "sleep-til-nooners" . 
As for TV, it was put off 
until the late hours 
when the group as a

for a little HBO and 

I could go on and on 
about the evenings 
spent in Georgetown 
and of the good times 
had by all, but for a lack 
of space (and courage) 
I'll leave that 
knowledge shelved with 
all of the pleasant 
memories of the good 
times had and the good 
friends made. 

Yes, despite our ef- 
forts, it cannot be said 
that this was not a 
learning experience. 
From the Smithsonian 
to Arlington Cemetery, 
the events experienced 
and the knowledge 
gained will stick with us 
all throughout our 
business careers and 
throughout our lives. 
And yes, Dad, I'm 
getting college credit 
for that. .

L.T.J. Gourmet 

By: Larry Morse 
Tina Hackett 
Jenny Loep 

This week L. T. J. 
Gourmet enjoyed a 
wonderful evening at 
The Gazebo in the Mall 
St. Vincent. The Gazebo 
|is owned by Roy Cage 
and is managed by 
Brian Butler and Craig 
,Ashenbrenner. The 
atmosphere in this 
distinguished cafe is 
that of a garden porch 
or a gazebo. The walls 
are covered with prints 
by several modern 
artists and all are on 
sale at moderate prices. 

The enticing menu 
ranges from croissant 
of chedder cheese and 
mushroom to omelets 

and eggs Benedict. 
Other favorites on the 
menu are seafood and 
spinach salads and a 
wide selection of 
gourmet hamburgers. 
The two favorites of 
L.T.J. Gourmet have to 
be the exquisite Veal 
Parmingiana and the 
Chicken Supreme which 
consists of chicken on a 
bed of ham and swiss 

we are sure you will 
also. The establishment 
is open from 11 a.m. 
until 10 p.m. p.m. on 
Friday and Saturday. 
They are closed Sun- 
days. Visa, Mastercard, 
and American Express 
credit cards are ac- 
cepted and they do not 
take checks. This 
restaurant ranges from 
moderate to inex- 
pensive. Try it and 

The Gazebo is a very enjoy! 
good restaurant, 
however, we recom- 
mend that those would 
like to try it go to this 
fine place for lunch or 
early supper as the 
surroundings here are 
not quite right for the 
dinner hour. L.T.J. 
Gourmet enjoyed our 
visit to the Gazebo and

While interim may 
have been a relaxing 
time for most Cen- 
tenary students, this 
past month has been 
filled with an unusual 
amount of excitement 
for those involved in the 
theater department. 

During January 1983, 
this department held a 
"Professional Theater 
Interim." Ten Cen- 
tenary students, and 
Mr. Robert Buseick, 
Chairman of the 
Theatre/ Speech 
Department, went to 
New York to get a first- 
hand view of some 
professional acting. 
While in the "Big Ap- 
ple," they attended 11 
Broadway plays, 
seminars, and field 
trips. In addition, the 
group was given per- 
sonal talks from 
directors, producers, 
and state managers, 
and got to go on some 
back stage tours. Ac- 
cording to Mr. Buseick, 
the interim proved to be 
educational as well as 
lots of fun! 

After interim, Cen- 
tenary students Cie 
Hawkins, Cara Derrick, 
Lisa Chaisson, and 
Anna Chappel from the 
Shreveport community, 
were asked to perform 
"My Sister in this 
House" at the Regional 
College Theater 

Come On Eileen! Let's Not Buy This Album 

"T<H>-Rve- Yv" 
Kevin Rowland & 
Doxy's Midnight

Imports, imports, 
! imports! For the past 
year, the U.S. has been 
innundated with multi- 
national imports of 
varying degrees of 
quality. Kevin Rowland 
& Dexy's Midnight 
Runners is simply 
another in a long series 
of low-quality British 
I bands. 

Rowland's debut U.S. 
I album, "Too-Rye-Ay," 
was a million-seller in 
| Europe, and the single, 
"Come on Eileen," was 
the number one song of 
1982 in England. But 
album sales do not 
| always ensure quality 
-as evidenced by John 

Cougar's monster hits 
"Jack and Diane," and 
"Hurts So Good/' 
Rowland is vastly 
different from Cougar, 
yet the bland repetition 
is the same. "Too-Rye- 
Ay" is full of misplaced 
horns and unintelligible 

4 Too-Rye- Ay ' ' opens 
with a bouncy tune 
called 4 The Celtic Soul 
Brothers." I don't know 
what a 4 'Celtic Soul 
Brother" is, but the 
song is fun and dan- 
ceable. Helen O'Hara 
and Steve Brennan 
accompany Rowland's 
bizarre vibrato with 
cheerful violins. This 
decent cut is quickly 
followed by a cut that 

belongs on a "Greatest 
Hits of The Tonight 
Show'" album "Let's 
Make This Precious" is 
a confusing song with 
the following elements 
mixed together in a 
ridiculous fashion: Big 
Band horns, disco beat, 
hand clapping, and rap- 
style break. The 
majority of the cuts on 
this record is just as 
unneccesary as this one. 

However, there is one 
more mediocre song 
which must be 
discussed. 44 A11 in All" 
is a direct ripoff of a 
Kate Bush tune called 
"Army Dreamers.'' 
Bush is one of England's 
top female vocalists and 
songwriters, and ap- 

parently it is profitable 
to steal her ideas. 
Almost every element 
of "All in All" was 
previously recorded on 
Bush's 1981 album. It is 
bad enough to com- 
mandeer an idea, but to 
do it badly is a crime. 

The best cut on the 
album is actually good. 
The hit, "Come on 
Eileen," is a peppy, 
preppy, pop tune that 
really sets the ol' toes to 
tappin'. It is easy to see 
why this particular song

Gents Return Home For Good 

Shreveport, La. — The 
Centenary Gentlemen 
aren't exactly sitting in 
the drivers seat, but 
sitting shotgun isn't bad 
either. The Gents 
concluded the 1983 TAAC 
road season in fine 
fashion Saturday night 
upsetting Houston 
Baptist University in 
Houston 56-55 in 
overtime. The win 
enabled the Gents to 
finish with a 3-4 TAAC 
road record. 

Centenary concludes the 
season with five straight 
TAAC home games and 
that's bad news for their 
opponents where the 
Gents are 7-2 in the Gold 
Dome Complex this 
year. Only nationally 
ranked Arkansas and the 
second place team in the 
TAAC Houston Baptist 
have been able to upend 
the Gents on their home 
court this season. 

The Gents meet 
Hardin-Simmons Uni- 
versity on Thursday and 
league-leading Arkansas- 
Little Rock on Saturday. 
Both games start at 7:45 
p.m., and can be heard 
on KRMD 1340 AM with 
Tracy Jackson handling 
the play-by-play 
beginning with the pre- 
game show at 7: 30. 

The win in Houston 
Saturday night evened 
the Gents overall record 

at 11-11 and raised their 
TAAC record to 4-5 
(.444). The Gents are in 
sixth place, one game 
behind Northwestern 
State (5-5 TAAC, .500) 
and Samford (5-6 TAAC, 

u The win in Houston 
was an important win for 
several reasons," head 
basketball coach 
Tommy Canterbury 
said. "First of all we 
beat an excellent 
basketball team and 
stopped their 13-game 
home court winning 
streak. And secondly, it 
was a great confidence 
booster coming home for 
five straight home 
games. We've been on 
the road a long time (9 of 
10 games) and we've 
paid the price." 

There's a heavy TAAC 
schedule this week 
beginning with a single 
TAAC game on 
Wednesday where 
Northwestern is at 
Georgia Southern. On 
Thursday Arkansas- 
Little Rock is at Houston 
Baptist (8-3 TAAC) and 
Northwestern is at 
Mercer (4-6 TAAC). 

A Centenary win 
Thursday coupled with a 
Northwestern loss would 
vault the Gents into sole 
possession of fourth 
place. With the TAAC 
playoffs only two weeks 

away, the pressure is 
mounting for the top four 
seeds. The first four 
place teams host the 
first-round of the TAAC 
tournament on March 5. 

In the first meeting 
this year the Gents 
downed Hardin- 
Simmons in Abilene 82- 
67 but lost to Arkansas- 
Little Rock in Little 
Rock 89-77. The Cowboys 
enter Thursday night's 
game with a 2-20 overall 
record and 1-10 TAAC 
mark. The Cowboys lost 
to M H Baylor in Abilene 
Monday night 84-77. 
Centenary leads the 
series 26-10. 

The Cowboys field the 
youngest team in the 
TAAC, and at times they 
play with four freshman 
and one sophomore on 
the court at the same 
time. They will start 
Craig Sladek (4.3 pts., 
3.8 rebs), a 6-10 
freshman, at center, 
Donald Johnson (12.3, 
4.1), a 6-6 junior, and 
Willie Maree (14.3, 6.8), 
a 6-6 junior, at the 
forward slots, and Alex 
Harris (3.6, 2.4), a 6-2 
freshman, and Kendrick 
Lewis (10.1, 2.1), a 6-5 
freshman, at the guard 

On Saturday the Gents 
host the hottest team in 
the league, Arkansas- 
Little Rock. The Trojans

game, excluding a game 
at Houston Baptist on 
Thursday, with a very

Little Rock will 
probably start Mike

Myron Jackson (5.1,

The Trojans feature 
the tallest and strongest 
team in the league. They 
are talented throughout 
and are blessed with a 
strong bench with the 
likes of Jerry Small (6.6,

bigger than anyone on 
the Gents roster. 

The Gents will start 
Willie Jackson (22.7,

Bad News Is Goo( 
News For Gents 

Eric "Bad News" 
Bonner, Centenary 
College's 6-7, 215-pound, 
junior center, from 
Shreveport, La., has 
been named the Trans 
America Athletic 
Conference Player of 
the Week for the week of 
Jan. 25-31. 

Bonner led the Gents 
in two road victories 
during the week, a 68-65 
win over Mercer 
University and a 83-74 
win over Central 
Florida, scoring 35 
points, including a 
career-high 27 against 
Central Florida, and 20 
rebounds in the two 

Bonner averaged 17.5 
points and 10.0 rebounds 
per game. In addition he 
shot 16 of 28 from the 
field for .571 percent 
and three of four from 
the charity stripe for 
.750 percent. He also 
handed out two assists, 
blocked three shots, and 
had two steals. 

"I don't think I have 
ever seen Bonner 
dominate a game like he 
did at Central Florida," 
head basketball coach 
Tommy Canterbury 
said. "I said from the 
beginning of the season 
that Willie Jackson 
(Centenary's A 1 1- 
American candidate 
and 10th leading scorer 
in the nation with a 23.2 
average) could not 
carry us every night for 
us to be successful. Eric 
has proved he can score 
in the 20- point range and 
he's been the reason for

KSCL is the only 
station in town which 
has classical music as 
its prime time show 
(every Monday from 5

special programming, 
the station hopes to 
attract classical music 
lovers from both 
Centenary and 
Shreveport. This par- 
ticular slot will also 
feature live recordings 
of the Chicago Sym-

is played on Sundays (5

(8 to 11 p.m.), and

On Wednesdays, a

Cassingham and

Homecoming '83: 
Definitely Different 

By Mickey Zemann 
This year, many 
Centenary students feel 
that High School 
Weekend is going to 
over-shadow our own 
Homecoming. However, 
Kathy Turner, the 
Director of Student 
Activities, along with 
Susan Lambert, Ad- 
missions Counselor, and 
the Student Govern- 
ment Association, have 
really tried to spice up 
the festivities planned 
for Homecoming 1983. 

Although many of the 
events planned for 
Homecoming intertwine 
with the events planned 
for High School 
Weekend, Kathy Turner 
feels that 
"Homecoming will be

Though official 
Homecoming events do 
not begin until the pep 
rally, which is 
scheduled for 3 p.m. 
Saturday, all students 
are encouraged to at- 
tend the Organizational 
Fair in the Student 
Union Building prior to 
the rally. The rally will 
feature Charlie Atkins 
as the Master of 
Ceremonies, along with 
the Centenary Gents 
Basketball members 
and coaches. Plans for 
the Centenary Ladies to 
attend the rally are not 
complete, but Susan 
Lambert "hopes they 
will be able to attend 
and participate." Also, 
the cheerleaders will 

try to raise some spirit 
with costumes and 
cheers. A special 
"enthusiasm contest" 
will be conducted by the 
Head Basketball Coach 
and some team 
members. At the con- 
clusion of the rally, the 
first clue for the $100 
Hunt will be announced 
and all Centenary 
students are en- 
couraged to pair off 
with a high school 
students and join the 
search. All clues, with 
the exception of the first 
one, will be announced 
over KSCL, Centenary's 
radio station. 

The Caf is also in- 
volved in this year's . 
Homecoming. A special 
Homecoming Dinner 
with tablecloths, 
candles, and a special 

buffet dinner will be 
served from 5-7 p.m., 
and everyone is en- 
couraged to eat dinner 
in the caf. 

The Homecoming 
Game will begin at 7:45 
p.m. in the Gold Dome, 
and immediately af- 
terwards there will be a 
dance in the Student 
Union Building. Jeff 
Edman will be disc 
jockey at the dance and 
some refreshments will 
be served. The dance 
and the Homecoming 
festivities will conclude 
around 1-1:30 a.m.

Letters To The Editors =— 

From The 
Wizard's Kettle 

Dear editors. 

We students are being 
deluged with so much 
irony and hypocrisy 
that it's getting hard to 
cross campus without a 

Are our alumni, 
supporters, and ad- 
ministration so blind to 
our needs that they can 
financially support a 
beautification program 
that ignores many basic 
necessities including 
the slow demolition of 
Jackson Hall by time 
ar.d insects, the decay of 
the foundation of Cline 
Dorm, the flooding of 
the basement of Haynes 
Gym following almost 
every rain, the 
tremendously inept 
management of the Caf 
which allows menus to 
repeat ad nauseum, the 
slow migration of the 
hill behind Mickle Hall 
to a final resting place 
against the retaining 
wall formed by Haynes 
Gym, the steady in- 
crease in tuition, room 
and board which pushes 
parents to the point of 
bankruptcy or the cheap 
job done on the parking 
lot behind Hurley which 
is already beginning to 

All this is over- 
shadowed by a 
beautification program 
which builds a Rose 
Garden in a place which 
physically and 
geographically doesn't 

need it, while leaving a 
huge pile of trash 
stacked behind Haynes 
Gym for months. A 
program which builds a 
lake ( of all things ) while 
leaving the grass un- 
mowed for weeks at a 
time. I could continue 
but it would be poin- 
tless. The idea that the 
students are getting and 
railing against is not the 
beautification of the 
campus, but rather the 
irony of great amounts 
of money being spent on 
things which in the long 
run will do nothing for 
Centenary's supposed 
main goal of educating 
young people. We see it 
all as a boondoggle 
designed to glorify the 
names of those who give 
the money. After all, 
how visible and historic 
would it be to shore up a 
foundation, redecorate 
a student union, endow 
a scholarship, or create 
a workable drainage 

1 would urge future 
contributors to think 
about these things when 
giving money to Cen- 
tenary, because in the 
long run, your names 
will be remembered by 
the monuments you've 
built, but will it have 
any meaning if Cen- 
tenary becomes just a 
beautiful park full of 
■engraved stones, i and 
flowers? Name Withheld

To The Editor: 

After reading the 
Conglomerate of last 
week, I discovered 
Messrs. Irvine and 
Bailes once again failed 
in their own inimitable 
style to properly analyze 
a political issue and 
place pertinent facts in 
their correct 
perspectives. I have 
indicated my 
displeasure of their 
viewpoints only 
verbally, but the 
'Wizards Kettle" 
column demands formal 
and widespread 
attention. Thus, I have 
little recourse but to 
address the Centenary 
populous through you. 

Yes, I speak of 
' ' Webbga t e " , ot herw ise 
known as the great Hose 
Garden Caper. My 
understanding of the 
situation is that 
Centenary College 
received a rather large 
donation to plant a rose 
garden in honor of a 
relative of the donor. 
The size of the 
expenditure for the 
project seems to distress 
several individuals 
entertaining a plethora 
of thoughts concerning 
uses for which the 
money may be more 
appropriately invested. 

I suggest a few facts 
be viewed carefully 
before the Inquisition 
convenes. Overlooked 
entirely is the 
fundamental right of 
individuals to spend 
money as they desire. 
When engaged in 
purchasing, a college is 
as much a consumer as a 
single person. Were the 
funds drawn from 
student fees, I would 
agree to the legitimacy 
of the complaints, but 
such is not the case. I 
certainly am angered by 
people telling me how to 
spend my money, 
especially if the source 
was in no manner 
related to my all- 
knowing, interfering 

Furthermore, the 
donation was made 
specifically for one 
purpose as designated 
by the donor. The 
wisdom of accepting 
such a donation is 
obvious; it is an 
improvement to the 
campus, and could lead 
to future donations 
earmarked for more 
vital areas. Support for 
scholarships occurs in 

this manner, but no one 
seems to possess 
arguments against this 
usage of funds; as long 
as it helps them, people 
remain silent. I am 
shocked and appalled at 
this selfish behavior 
exhibited by students 
who profess that their 
chosen careers are "to 
benefit their fellow 
man". As a Business 
Major, my chosen 
profession is branded as 
'selfish" and 
"discriminatory", but at 
least I admit it . I detest 
hypocrisy! It seems 
ironic that these self- 
serving individuals 
receive paid educations 
from people employed 
by the very industries 
they condemn. 

The comments of 
Mister Irvine were 
needless, I am sure the 
Centenary Administra- 
tion is fully aware that 
several departments 
could be enhanced with 
additional funding. 
Mister Irvine singles out 
the somewhat 
dilapidated condition of 
Jackson Hall, a site with 
which he seems 
particulars familiar. As 
a Business and 
Economics Major, I feel 
obligated to remind him 
that despite possession 
the largest enrollment of 
any department at 
Centenary, the Business 
Department has no 
building and is forced to 
occupy the library 
basement. Mister Irvine 
should be ecstatic to 
have windows; the 
basement has pink 
rooms, black-outs, and 
ant invasions. I now 
know how dark a 
hallway without 
windows or lights can 
become. Also. I will 
trade my ants for his 
bats any day. 

I found Mister Irvine's 
attitude concerning 
memorials to be 
particularly revolting. 
The column suggests 
that only illogical 
reasons lead to these 
projects, such as foolish 
pride in one's 
accomplishments. I fully 
agree, and wish to go on 
record promising that 
after I am unleased on 
an unsuspecting world 
and make my fortune, I 
have every intention of 
erecting the Forrest 
Wendell Parlette 
Memorial Hall of 

Business and 
Economics. And I assure 
you. Mister Irvine. I will 
be damned proud of it!

Editor's note: all letters 
are printed as received. 

Dear editors. 

Isn't there something 
basically wrong with 
reasoning which forces 
businesses to advertise 
in the Conglomerate by 
spelling the word 
BEER, REEB, while 
allowing a local medical 
facility to advertise it's 
services by stating that 
they perform ABOR- 
TIONS, rather than 
SNOITROBA. After all, 
you can walk across the 
street to get either one. 

John W. Trigg 

Letter to the editors 

The student body at 
the past Gents game 
really stunk. Warde 
Leisman really tried to 
get the student section 
crazy but there was no 
reply. That's why 
Centenary is Centenary 
because people don't 
stand behind the teams 
the school represents. 
So a note to the 
fraternites •let's raise a 
little hell at the next 
Gents game. Centenary 
students, don't worry 
nobody will turn in the 
Honor Court for 
screaming at a game. 
At least nobody yet. 

KA chapter 

By J. Alan Irvine 

The following is yet 
another report from the 
explorer who has for 
some months now, been 
living in our midst, 
making observations 
and reports. 

Spring is coming, 
bringing with it the 
mating season, the birth 
of the young, and fer- 
tility rites. That natives 
of Centenary are no 
exception. Even now, 
they are readying 
themselves for a bizarre 
ceremony in which they 
endeavor to reproduce 
themselves. Rather 
than engaging in 
physical reproduction, 
they rely on a magic 
ritual they call High 
School Weekend to 
mystically entrance 
members of lesser 
races and bind their 
souls to Centenary. 

They bring these 
people, undoubtedly 
prisoners captured in 
war, into one grand 
arena where they parcel 
them out to the in- 
dividuals of the tribe as 
hostages. It is the job of 
the hostage-masters to 
indoctrinate their wards 
into the ways of the 
tribe. They escort them 
around, making sure 
they not only know 
where the good places 
are, but also the taboo 
areas; for example, the 
place where their Great 
King parks his vehicle 
to be tended by a dozen 
nubile young maidens 
every day (why, even to 
cast a longing glance at 
this space, whether or 
not the Great King is 
using it, is punishable 

by their ultimate 
ture — Being Called j 
or the great trench , 
dug as a line of def^ 
against the demon an 
of Roses. 

Sometime during 
day they will gather 
sacrifice the Sacr r 
Pineapple. Although 
have not been able 
find out much about I 
ceremony, I think it is

ceremonies will con

enemy tribe. Coral

Hardin Field To Get Zoo 

This weekend is 
homecoming; A time for 
alumni to gather in 
remeberance of their 
days at Centenary 
College and a time for 
students of '83 to 
promote the spirit that is 
so vital to our basket- 
ball team. 

I myself did not bother 
to attend last year's 
homecoming game. As a 
freshman, what this 
college offered in the 
way of homecoming 
activities was hardly 
what I was accustomed 
to. I had been spoiled 
with the homecomings of 
high school past. 

This year the Student 
Government Association 
and the admissions 
office took the matter of 
Centenary's homecoming 
into their own hands and 
reshaped the event into a 
happening that may be 
the best homecoming 
Centenary has 
experienced. That is, if 
you the students see fit to 

The fraternities and 
sororities, along with the 
occupants of James, 
Hardin, Sexton, Rotary 
and Cline are 
encouraged to decorate 
their houses and dorms. 
Saturday at 3 p.m. the 
cheerleaders will bring 

back to Centenary 
something that has been 
missing each year: a pep 
rally. All students are 
urged to gather in the 
shell and show the Gents 
that we support them. 

All of this may sound 
good, and proper for a 
homecoming, but there 
is more! Prior to the 
game, the cafeteria will 
undergo a "drastic" 
change. White table- 
cloths and candles will 
set an atmosphere 
usually foreign to the 
students who dine in 
Bynum Commons. 
Invitiations have been 
sent by the SGA 
"cordially" inviting you 
to a Formal Candlelight 
dinner from 5:30-7 p.m. 

The Queen and Her 
Court will highlight the 
evening basketball game 
between the Gents and 
Samford from Alabama. 
The game will begin at 
7:45 and the court will be 
presented at halftime. 

Let's not go elsewhere 
Saturday but to the 
cafeteria, the basketball 
games and the SUB. 
Support the efforts that 
the SGA and the 
Admissions Office have

The Hardin Field Zoo 
is just one of many 
future projects of 
Centenary College. To 
be located on the 
existing property known 
as Hardin Field, the zoo 
will add a new 
dimension of recreation 
to the campus. Animals 
ranging in size from a 
bull elephant to dwarf 
skunks are sure to add a 
new dimension in smell 
as well. Funding for the 
project comes mainly 

from the Great 
Teachers — Baboons 
Fund, a new un- 
dertaking of the alumni 
association. Our soo, 
scheduled to open in 
Fall 1985 will house 
special exhibits of 
three-toed sloths, 
chuckwallas, yaks, 
wombats, and if enough 
money is raised — even 
a sasquatch. The cost 
this wonderful "critter- 
condo" is estimated at a 
mere $2.8 million. 

For the more cultural- 
minded student, your 
"cup of tea" is just 
around the corner. The 
Fall of 1984 will mark 
the premiere of the 
Gladys Hurley Mar- 

ching Band. Nicknamed 
"The Pips ", the 400 
piece band will feature 
the world's only electric 
glockenspiel as well as a 
twelve piece neon tuba 
section. The scheduled 
conductor is John 
Phillip Sousa IV. All of 
this splendor for only 
$1.9 million — courtesy 
of the Great Teachers — 
Tubas Fund. 

Wait! There's more. 
Don Webb will add a 
touch of the old country 
in the form of the 
"Changing of the 
Guard" ceremony to 
take place daily in front 
of Hamilton Hall 
beginning next fall. The 
institution of the 
ceremony will mean 
new uniforms for the 
campus police and a 
new zest for school - 
weary students. The 
Great Teachers — 
Great Day in Morning 
Fund has alloted the 
modest $85,000 

Can there be more? 
Yes! CSCC (not to be 
confused with CCCP) 
has raised $36 million 
through their Great 
Teachers — Great Wall 
of China Fund. The 
proceeds will go 

towards building the 
Tower of Babel II on the 
vacant grounds between 
the library and 
Hamilton Hall. The 
undetermined height of 
the structure is leaving 
completion costs "up in 
the air" so speak, but 
hey, the Great Wall 
didn't come cheap 

Another tidbit from 
our endless list is the 
SUB. to Subway 
project. That's right, 
our Student Union 
Building will be con- 
verted into the main 
terminal for the campus 
subway system. The 
mighty train, 
nicknamed "Cen-ten- 
tin" will cater to all 
major campus buildings 
except decrepid old 
Jackson Hall. Who 
wants to go there 
anyway? The 5 cents 
fare will go towards 
defraying the cost of 
operation whereas the 
initial building costs of 
some $48 million will be 
secured through the 
donations made to the 
Great Teachers — 
Great Big Choo-Choo 
Fund. The scheduled 
opening date is Spring 

Last but surely not 
least, our alumni 

association, operating 
under the guise of the 
Great Teachers — 
Great-Great Grand- 
parents Fund, has 
secured $4 million for 
the immediate con- 
struction of the Alumni 
Drag Strip along what is 
now the 100 block of 
Wilkinson Street. 
Termed "a much 
needed vent for 
hostilities ', the strip 
will feature full-function 
traffic signals, REEB 
concessions, video 
games for the aged 
(Heart Attac-man>and 
even come complete 
with two competition 
dragsters. How 
awesome can you get? ! 

So, there you have it 
— but a partial list of 
the greatness yet to 
come. It's projects like 
these that make one 
proud to say "Cen- 
tenary-my Centenary!" 
What a school! What a 


Joining the Army Reserve can reduce your 
college costs. If you qualify, our Educational Assist- 
ance program will pay up to $1,000 a year of your 
tuition for four years. 

If you have taken out a National Direct or Guar- 
anteed Student Loan since October 1, 1975, our 
Loan Forgiveness program will repay 15% of your 
debt (up to $10,000) or $500, whichever is greater, 
for each year you serve.

Reserve enlistment can help pay for college, call the

Minutes From The Senate 

The Senate was called to order at 11 : 13 a.m. 
by President Greg Blackman, with all 
members present. The minutes of the 
previous meeting were approved with a 
minor revision concerning the spelling of 
Alyce Boudreaux's name. President Black- 
man announced that the SGA had about $3800 
allocated to various projects with an un- 
budgeted reserve of about $3500. 

The Senate received reports today from the 
Entertainment, Forums, and Elections 
Committees, along with reports from its Ad 
Hoc Committees, on Homecoming and on 
Course and Faculty Evaluation. The En- 
tertainment Committee announced for- 
thcoming SUB movie - "Taps" - and 
declared the Mardi Gras party in the 

cafeteria to be a success. The Forums 
Committee was unable to report on a possible 
forum with Gymnast Kurt Thomas, but hoped 
to have further information by the next 
meeting. The election for Judicial Board will 
be March 3, due to the Senate's waiving of the 
three-week notification rule on a motion by 
Senator Nancy Fox. Senator Boudreaux's 

Homecoming Committee will receive $500 
from the Senate — $350 for a DJ and $150 for 
decorations in a package motion offered by 
Senator Trey Paulsen. Neither of the Fox nor 
Paulsen motions received any opposition. 
Senator Mike Ragland's Course and Faculty 
Evaluation Committee announced that 
preparations were being made to begin 
gathering information for the "Course and 
Study Guide" for freshmen. 

Under the heading of "Old Business," two 
issues came before the Senate 1) the Mardi 
Gras Forum and 2) Pegasus. The Mardi Gras 
Forum is tentatively scheduled for March 10 
and will consist of a multi-media presentation 
led by a professor or the Senate. A motion to 
fund a Spring issue of Pegasus at a cost of 
$1500-$1600 for 400 copies was passed by a vote 
of 7-6, with President Blackman casting the 
deciding vote. The motion was overridden, 
thanks to parliamentary maneuvering by 
Senator Bobby Brown, and eventually the 
Pegasus issue was once again tabled until the 
next Senate meeting. 

No new business was brought up, and the 
Senate was adjourned at 12:15 p.m.

Greenburg Views Liberal 
Arts As A Liberation 

Last Thursday, Paul 
Greenberg spoke at 
Convocation. Dr. 
Donald Webb in- 
troduced Mr. Green- 
berg as "a professional 
who is the epitome of 
the liberal arts 
education." Greenberg 
attended Byrd High 
School, and between 
1952 and 1954 he at- 
tended Centenary 
College. He got his BA 
in Journalism and his 
MA in history. He won 
the Pulitzer Prize for 
his journalistic efforts 
in calming people 
during desegregation. 

Greenberg spoke in 
favor of the liberal arts 
education. He began his 
talk with, "It's good to 
be home." He said that 

the incompetent ideas of 
the 50's are back in the 
80's. People once again 
believe that the in- 
dividual can develop 
competence on his own. 
People are overly 
concerned with success. 
They believe they can 
hold others down 
without having to stay 
down with them. 

He pits the liberal 
education against these 
ideas. He said that we, 
with the aid of the 
liberal arts education, 
must "Preserve the 
meaning of words." He 
said that the use of 
liberal arts is to 
"preserve, sustain, and 
keep thought alive." 
This type of education 
should "liberate the 

student rather than 
confine him." 

He sees the people of 
today seeking "power 
for its own sake. 5 ' 
People today are overly 
concerned with the 
economic and social 
status of themselves 
and others. 

He believes that the 
"liberal arts education 
must still be sought for 
to inform and liberate 
the free society. 

He said that we, being 
educated in the liberal 
arts, must "challenge 
the generally accepted 
standards of good 
taste" since we will be 
the "cultural misfits" in 
this sucess- and power- 
seeking society.

High school students 
will receive a ballot in

enable them to vote for

Auditions for Hurley 
School of Music, Church 
Careers Interviews and 
campus tours will 
continue until lunch, at 
that time, the 
organizations fair wrll 
be held in the south 
cafeteria. Campus 
groups wil lhave the 
opportunity to display 
information concerning 
thier club or 
organization and 
students will get a look 
at the extracurricular 
activities at Centenary. 

After lunch, Cen- 
tenary President 
Donald A. Webb will 
welcome all visitors to 
the campus and the 
internationally known 
Centenary Choir will 
perform. At 3 p.m., as 
part of the Homecoming 
festivities, the 
cheerleaders will stage 
a pep rally in the am- 
phitheater. In addition 

to the Gents, the Ladies 
and the coaches of both 
basketball teams will be 
on hand. "Surprise 
attractions" are 

Some lucky team will 
hit the jackpot in the 
Hundred Dollar Hunt. 
The first clue will he 
given at the pep rally, 
followed by reports on 
KSCL, the campus radio 
station. To be eligible 
for the hunt, a high 
school student must 
team up with a Cen- 
tenary student. 

In an effort to 
generate more in- 
volvement in 
Homecoming, the 
Student Government 
Association and the 
Admissions Office have 
cooked up "something 
out of the ordinary," 
according to John 
Lambert, Director of 
Admissions and 
Financial Aid." Dinner 
in the caf" will become 
a formal Candlelight 
dinner in Bynum 
Commons for students, 
faculty and ad- 
ministration. Dress 
should be nice. 

At 7:45 p.m., the 
Gents will meet Sam- 
ford in the Gold Dome in 
a TAAC contest. The 
Homecoming Queen 
and her court will be 

presented at half-time. 
Following the game, the 
"victory" dance will be 
in the SUB, featuring 
Jeff Edman, from 
KEEL Radio. 

Lambert considers 
the combination of 
Homecoming and high 
school weekend to be a 
positive move. It was 
"accidental" that the 
two separate functions 
chose the same date. 
The combination 
benefits both students 
already here as well as 
prospective students. 

Other events included 
in the weekend will be 
worship Sunday mor- 
ning led by Diane 
Fowler, Chaplain's 
Assistant; an in- 
tramural flag football 
game between the 
fraternites Tau Kappa 
Epsilon and Theta Chi 
Saturday afternoon; an 
Sunday afternoon, the 
Broncos, a spring 
soccer club comprised 
of Gent soccer players 
will be in action on the 
soccer field. 

Lambert would like to 
credit Centenary 
students who will be 
providing rooms for the 
high school students 
because, "without the 
students' support, we 
couldn't have high 
school weekend."

"Jimmy Dean... " 

Cara Derrick, Cindy 
Hawkins and Shelle 
Sumners head the cast 
of "Come Back to the 5 
and Dime, Jimmy 
Dean, Jimmy Dean," a 
play by Ed Graczyk. 
The comedy-drama, to 
be guest-directed by 
Patric McWilliams, 
opens March 10 at the 
Marjorie Lyons 
Playhouse. "Come 
Back to the 5 and Dime, 
Jimmy Dean, Jimmy 
Dean," is set in an 
antiquated five-and- 
dime in a Texas back- 
water, where a group of 
women have gathered, 
in 1975, for the twentieth 
anniversary of James 
Dean's death. Mona, 
played by Miss Derrick, 
claims to have had 
Dean's child while 
wokring with him on the 
movie "GIANT." She is 
the chief celebrant of 
the Dean cult and has 
gathered the remaining 
club members together 
to rehash the broken 
dreams and memories 
the passing years have 
destroyed. Miss 
Hawkins plays Sissy, a 
club member who has 
remained in Texas 
working at the five-and- 

dime and Miss Sumners 
is the mysterious 
Joanne, a stranger who 
appears and exposes 
everyone's illusions. 

The play was recently 
on Broadway with Cher, 
Sandy Dennis and 
Karen Black in the 
leading roles and is 
currently enjoying 
success as a film, 
winning Best Picture at 
the Chicago Film 
Festival. Cher and Miss 
Black are both said to 
be contenders for a 
supporting actress 
"Oscar" nomination. 

McWilliams has 
previously directed 
"Ring round the Moon" 
for the Centenary 
theatre and is the 
resident costume 
designer for the Mac- 
Hayden Theatre in New 
York City where he now 
lives. His local credits 
as a designer include 
"Madame de Sade," 
"No, No Nannette," 
"Masterpieces" and 
"The Unsinkable Molly 
Brown." His acting 
credits include 
"Summer and Smoke," 
"Harold and Maude" 
and "Vieux Carre." 
He's won two TIMES 

"The Visit" and "Ap- 

Rounding out the 
theatrical cast is Nancy 
Humphrey as Juanita, 
the store manager; 
Janette Fox and 
Suzanne Matheny as 
Dean club members and 
Lee Morgan as Joe, a 
town misfit befriended 
by the Dean cult. 

Chuck Drury has 
designed the setting 
with Julie Edwards 
designing the lights and 
Miss Hawkins handling 
the costuming. Pam 
Ebarb is in charge of 
props and stage 
dressings and Tripp 
Phillips is serving as 
Assistant Director. 

The Centenary 
production runs March 
10-12 and 17-19 at 8 p.m. 
There will be a Sunday 
matinee March 13 at 2 
p.m. Tickets are $6 for 
adults and $3 for 
students. Tickets may 
be reserved by calling

As the restaurant 
business continues, so 
do the many adventures 
of L.T.J. Gourmet. This 
week we attempted to 
visit the Orient by 
dining at the Bamboo 
Restaurant, located at 
2004 Centenary Blvd. 
For the time it took for 
dinner, we could have 
traveled to the East and 
experienced a truly 
authentic meal. Con- 
sidering the type of 
restaurant the Bamboo 
is, the service was 
unbearably slow. The 
waitresses also tried too 
hard to converse with us 
throughout our stay. 
May be the pressures of 
school had something to 
do with our lack of in- 
terest in the "small" 
talk in which we were 
forced to partake.

Magale Library 

Native American 
Paintings, which are on 
view at the Magale 
Library Gallery until 
March 27, comprise 45 
paintings spanning the 
years 1865-1980. This 
exhibition summarizes 
the development of 
American Indian 
painting. Beginning 
with an anonymous 
Cheyenne's painting on 
an army issue ledger 
page, the show winds 
through the expression 
of the important 4 'Five 
Kiowa Artists'' of 1920- 
1940 and ends with 
contemporary Indian 
statements by Dennis 
Belindo and Aquaso.

Gents Reach Century Mark 

Centenary College 
used the combined 
scoring of Willie Jackson 
(32 points) and Bobo 
Thomas (23 points) and 
score a 102-76 win over 
Northwestern State here 
Tuesday night in a Trans 
America Conference 
basketball game. 

The win, which 
avenged an earlier loss 
by the Gents to the 
Demons, leaves 
Centenary at 13-12 on the 
.M'<i$<m at (>-(> in the 
TAAC Northwestern, 
losing its fourth straight 
game, is 7-18 on the 
season and ends 
conference play for the 
Demons with a f>-9 mark. 

The game was close 
throughout most of the 
first half until foil 
trouble caught up witn 
the Demons near the end 
of I he half and 
Centenary led 49-#l at 
(he midway pom!: With 

six minutes left in the 
half Demon Calvin 
Madlock picked up his 
fourth foul and less than 
a minute later Johnny 
Martin collected his 
third. Madlock had 
scored 10 points in the 
first half before his third 
and fourth fouls came 
back to back before he 
could be removed from 
the line-up. 

Centenary wasted 
little time once the 
second half got started in 
putting the game away. 
While Bobo Thomas had 
scored 15 of his 23 points 
in the first half, Jackson 

took control in the final 
20 minutes for the Gents. 
Jackson scored 20 points 
in the final half and 
ended the game with 32 

While those two 
controlled things at the 
offensive end for the 

Gents, center Johnny 
Martin led the 
Northwestern attack. 
Facing a sagging Gent 
defense, Martin still 
managed to score a 
season-high 20 points 
before fouling out of the 
game with over five 
minutes to play. 

Martin got scoring hell 
from Madlock with '5 
points and Kenny Hale 
added 10 points, just one 
of those in the second 
half. Madlock did not 
foul out of the contest 
despite the early foul 

Centenary took 
advantage of the foul 
situation to hit 30 of 38 
free throws in the game 
while Northwestern 
managed to hit just 20 of 
30 free shots. Kor 
the game four Gents 
scored in double figures 
besides Jackson and 
Thomas. Reggie Hurd

Vol. 77 No. 17 

SGA continues debate 
on Pegasus 

The March 1, 1983 meeting of the Student 
Senate was called to order at 11:10 a.m. by 
President Greg Blackman. The minutes of 
the previous meeting were approved without 
objection. Senate Treasurer Wade Mc- 
Cutcheon reported that figures were still 
unavailable concerning the cost to the Senate 
of the Mardi Gras holiday. Under the heading 
of "Special Business", the Senate allowed the 
earlier absences of Senior Senator Wade 
Cloud, following a brief statement hv Cloud. 

'Tuesday the Senate heard reports from its 
standing committees on Entertainment, 
Forums, and Elections, and its ad hoc 
committee on Course Evaluation. Thurndotte 
Baughman's Entertainment Committee 
reported that SUB Week would be from 
March 18-24, and would raise money for the 
SUB fund. The Forum Committee reported 
that gymnast Kurt Thomas had turned the 
Senate's offer down and Senator Mike 
Ragland suggested author Lawrence 
Meredith, but no definite plans were made. 
The Elections Committee reported that the 
election for the Judicial Board vacancy will 
be held Thursday, in the Cafeteria during 
lunch and supper. President Blackman 
recognized the work of Senator Alyce 
Boudreaux's Homecoming Committee. Work 
will now proceed on the course evaluation 
guide, thanks to the work of Senator 
Ragland's Course Evaluation Committee. 

Under the heading of "Old Business," the 
Senate approved a forum on Mardi Gras to be 
done by Brad Hoge. And according to Senator 
Boudreaux research is proceeding con- 
cerning a campus nurse and all looks 
favorable. The hottest topic of "Old 
Business" was once again Pegasus. After 
much discussion concerning the merits of a 
student literary magazine and the original 
funding of Pegasus for the 1982-83 year, with 
input from the Senate gallery, the debate 
centered on the money available to the 
Senate. Eventually, Senator Bobby Brown 
made a motion that a committee of three be 
formed to decide how much money was ac- 
tually available for Pegasus funding. Senator 
Mike Ragland declared the idea of such a 
committee to be "outrageous" and refused to 
kke part of "a delaying ploy." Pegasus 
^itor J. Alan Irvine stated that unless the 
^nate made a decision within three weeks 
u nne, constraints will make publishing a 
s Prtng edition impossible. Senator Brown's 
c ommittee will consist of himself, Treasurer 
^cCutcheon, and Senator Boudreaux and will 
m *ke its report at the March 8th Senate 
Meeting . 

Following the decision that the student 
bl °od drive would be held on March 24th, 
** r ing SUB Week, Vice President Kyle Labor 
Motioned that all further talk of allocations be 
^bled until the next Senate meeting, and at 


P m the Senate was adjourned.

Deadline for FAF 
forms near 

By Veronica Amels 

Students that are in need for financial aid should meet with Jeff Teter, 
Financial Aid Counselor, because the process of receiving financial aid is 
long and time consuming. That is why it is very important to meet the 
financial aid deadline. 

Centenary students have a chance to receive some kind of scholarship, 
whether it is on a need base or an academic base. To find out if you 
qualify for a scholarship, go to the financial aid office and fill out the FAF 
(Financial Aid Form) accurately. It is a good idea to make a copy of the 
FAF for your personal files. Sometime afterwards you will receive a 
Student Aid Report-take this report to the financial aid office. The student 
aid report will determine your award Scholarship. It could include the 
need or (and) academic scholarship, federal government money, work- 
study payments, and school loans. After the scholarship reward has been 
processed it is important for you to sign your award. 

Jeff Teter has stressed the importance to meet the financial aid 
deadlines. You must submit your FAF and Centenary Financial Aid 
applications before the deadline, May 15, 1983. It is also very important to 
keep copies of all the financial aid applications you have mailed or turned 
in to the Financial Aid office. 

Starting for the year of September 1983-August 1984, all Centenary 
male students over the age of 18 must have proof that they have 
registered for the draft. This is a new policy through the Federal 

If you have any questions or changes that need to be made on your 
financial aid application or award, make an appointment to talk to one of 
the officials at the financial aid office. They could be a great help to your 
college career! 

Changes antieipated 
in Curriculum 

By Jackie Pope* 

The Centenary 
College faculty is 
considering a new set of 
core requirements. If 
this new core package 
passes, there will be 
several changes in 
students' core 
requirements. One of 
these changes would be 
in the Interim Studies. 
The new package, as of 
now, would include the 
six hours required from 
Interim studies in the 
regular core instead of 
requiring the students 
to take courses in 
January in order to 

Dick Anders, Dean of 

Students at Centenary 
College, has suggested 
an alternative plan. 
Students would return 
to Centenary in early 
January, finish the 
semester in early May, 
and still be able to take 
trips with professors 
like the ones offered in 

As of now. the ten- 
tative schedule has In- 
terim scheduled in 
January with no core 
changes. None of these 
new plans have been 
approved yet. The 
faculty will meet soon to 
discuss further these 
changes in core

Letters To The Editors 

What is P.A.C.? 
P.A.C. stands for the 
President's Advisory 
Council. Now, if you 
have never heard of 
P.A.C, before as I'm 
sure many of you 
haven't you might 
logically assume that 
the main function of the 
group would be to ad- 
vise the president. 
Granted, it would be a 
good guess, but un- 
fortunately it would be 

The President's 
Advisory Council ran an 
ad in The Conglomerate 
around the middle of 
last semester seeking 
applicants to fill some 
vacancies in the 
council. First the ap- 
plications of those who 
applied were screened, 
and shortly afterwards, 
the applicants were 
screened by three 
people. The finalists 
were chosen and the 
first meeting was 

President Webb at- 
tended the first P.A.C. 
meeting and spoke of 
high hopes concerning 
the group's involvement 
in various decisions. He 
mentioned that it was 
important to him to get 
some student imput and 
that P.A.C. would 
provide him with this 

outlet. He specifically 
mentioned his wanting 
the group's involvement 
in the proposed core 
l requirement changes 
which, at that time, was 
a much debated and 
controversial topic. 
Since that initial 
meeting, President 
Webb has not addressed 
the group again. So 
much for the t4 input" 
and 4t advising". 

Technically, P.A.C is 
divided into two major 
committees of "task 
forces": 1) The Ad- 
missions Task Force, 
and 2) The Develop- 
ment Task Force. The 
Admissions Task Force 
is supposed to be in- 
volved in the recruit- 
ment of new students to 
Centenary. Obviously 
this would include 
campus tours and in- 
volvement in High 
School Weekend. Now, 
if you see a high school 
student on campus, he 
or she is more likely to 
be accompanied by 
Charlie Atkins, the 
president of P.A.C. If 
Charlie is too busy to 
conduct a tour, he will 
probably ask his co- 
worker Susan Lambert 
or someone working \\ 
Hamilton Hall to help 
him out. Doesn't it eem

High School Weekend: In Miss X's opinio* 

By Liz Ritchie 

High School weekend... ah yes... it's over now. I 
wasn't too sure about it at first because I had never 
experienced it myself. We as students hadn't had 
any instruction on what to do; there were no sheets 
of paper with information that we should know. It 
was taking a step into the dark for me. I wanted a 
high school student to stay with me since my plans 
for the whole weekend had fallen through. I didn't 
want to have to "tag along" with others, so my high 
school student was JUST someone to walk with me. 

Friday evening, I talked to several people and 
found out that I had not yet been assigned anyone. 
Well, great... what now? I talked to a girl in the 
dorm who had been assigned three girls. It was 
decided that I'd show them around. She had a friend 
in town, so it was no problem. 

Saturday morning, I was awakened by a knock on 
the door. It was Miss X from Springhill. I dragged 
myself out of bed after a long night at the Sig House, 
got dressed, and showed her and two other girls 
around campus. Much to our surprise, I was very 
knowledgeable about the campus. After all, it is 
only my second semester here. The other two were 
excited about the weekend and the school. Miss X 
was quiet. She wasn't sure about the whole 
situation. All day long I tried and tried to get her to 
talk and smile and just be excited. By gametime, 
she was talking a bit more but was still not sure. 

One of the TKE's, being his usual friendly self, 
talked to her at the game. She didn't encourage 
conversation in order to avoid "leading him on." 
She had a serious boyfriend at home so she felt as 
though she couldn't associate with any boys. Oh 
boy, what an exciting night this was going to be!? 
After the game, she said she didn't dance. My in- 
sides were just grinding. 

We ended up going to the dance. She let loose and 
met Mr. Z. They stayed by each other all night. I

and after Miss Z and Mr. Z disappeared, we

crazy places. It was fun. I only saw Miss X t

Dear Editors : 

Ha. Ha. How do you like that?

From The Wizard's Kettle

Homecoming and 
High School Weekend 
wrapped together. A 
rather impressive 
package. A successful 

Although the 
"Weekend" officially 
began Saturday mor- 
ning, a number of high 
schoolers decided to 
jump the gun and get an 
early start on things — 
some showing up even 
late Friday afternoon. 
Not entirely thrilled 
with the prospect of 
catering to them so 
soon, I tried to convince 
myself that I really 
didn't see them. Ob- 
viously, I said, I was 
imagining things. No 
such luck. (I don't have 
anything against High 
Schoolers, I just wasn't 
quite ready to start 
playing host.) 

Saturday morning the 
main event began, with 
streams of them con- 
verging on the SUB, 

then dispersing again 
towards the dorms or 
trooping about, touring 
the campus in great 
companies. The 
registration and 
academic "fair," better 
organized than in many 
a year, provided more 
of a mingling place for 
Centenary people than 
High Schoolers, but that 
seems to be the rule for 
all such events. 

This year the 
Organization Fair was 
actually that — 
organized, and some 
High Schoolers even 
attended! Still, the most 
enjoyable part of it 
consisted of writing 
notes back and forth 
with the folks manning 
the other ables. Of 
course, working the 
Fair meant that I had to 
miss all the official 
speeches, welcomes, 
etc. during lunch. Darn. 

I've always found 
chaos a great spectator 
sport; thus, the Hun- 

dred Dollar hunt made 
to order with hundreds 
(well, scores anyway) 
of people dashing back 
and forth all over the 
campus. Every time a 
new clue was un- 
covered, people 
stampeded in that 
direction, emptying the 
rest of the campus. 
Through the middle of 
all this charged a 
bizarre parade that 
looked as it got lost on 
the way to Mardi Gras. 

The Homecoming 
Activities generated a 
good deal of excitement 
and energy, starting 
with the Pep Rally, then 
a dinner which differed 
drastically from the 
usual Saturday night 
fare with a delightful 
change of pace and 
atmosphere, through 
the game which we 
actually won (the first 
Homecoming game 
we've won in awhile — 
good work, Gents! ) and 
to one of the best on- 

campus dances eve 
(Congratulations toj 
corp of decorators 
an excellent job.) 

In all, both week* 
events ended up 
the best they've beeni 
several years.

of these 4 'far-fetched" 
ideas did work, and 
Homecoming '83 was in 
fact a tremendous 
Beginning the day 
prior to Homecoming, 
Centenary students 
watched as the com- 
petition between the 
various fraternity and 
sorority houses began. 
Zeta Tau Alpha sorority 
took first place with 
their slogan "Run 'Em 

Congratulations, ZTA! 
We know you'll put that 
$150 to good use. Second 
place went to Tau 
Kappa Epsilon with

their slogan "Bone the 
Bulldogs." (Clever, 
guys.) Rumor has it 
that several dedicated 
TKE's were up 'til the 
wee hours of the mor- 
ning completing their 
masterpiece. Hope that 
$100 helps with RCB, 
guys. In third place was 
Chi Omega sorority. 
The Chi-O's will surely 
put their prize to "wise" 
use. Congratulations 

The cheerleaders 
boosted the Gents to 
victory at one of the 
most well-spirited pep 
rallies ever at Cen- 
tenary! With special 
help from star 
basketball player 
Napoleon Byrdsong, the 
cheerleaders allowed 
the crowd to show their 
own spirit. This 
provided comedy and 
entertainment to the 
success of the pep rally. 
How 'bout them 
cheerleaders? Keep up 
the good work, ladies! 
The pep rally concluded 
with the first clue to the 
$100 Hunt given by the 
Master of Ceremonies, 
Mr. Charlie Atkins. 

The candlelight 
dinner in Bynum 
Commons added a touch 
of class to the evening. 
With the help of the two 
maitre d's, Charlie 
Atkins and Kenny Gele, 
the usual caf was made 
into a place of elegance. 
Students were treated to 
roast beef, delicately 
carved by two experts, 
and to homemade rolls. 
We hope this will be a 
continuing tradition at 
Centenary. Thanks to 
all who worked so hard 
on this dinner — 
especially to the staff in 
the caf. 

Finally, the climax of 
the whole evening — the 
actual Homecoming 
Game. The crowd was 
as spirited as has ever 
been seen this year. It 
was a game of anxiety 
and excitement, and all 
involved (except of 
course, Sam ford) found 
the game to be one of 
the best yet. Great job, 

The game itself was 
highlighted by our own 
Centenary beauties. 
School spirit swelled as 
each of the ladies took 
;heir walk. A very 
ipecial note went to 
iMiss Jill Brown of the 

court who, due to prior 
commitments with the 
gymnastics team, was 
unable to attend the 
half-time ceremony. 
Julia Van Tiem of the 
Athletic Department 
read Brown's im- 
pressive resume, and 
wished her the best of 
luck at the LSU meet. 
Congratulations to all 
our beauties and 
especially to Carole 
Powell, announced 
Second Maid, and to 
Cathy Amsler, First 
Maid. A very special 
congratulations goes to 
Miss Libby Taylor, who 
was announced the 
Homecoming queen at 
Centenary for the 
second time. 

The Dance honoring 
Queen Libby and her 
court was held im- 
mediately after the 
game. High school and 
college students alike 
joined in the victory 
celebration. The 
decorations provided by 
Student Activities 
Director Kathy Turner 
and her committee 
added glamour to the 

evening. Residents of Sexton 

Homecoming 83 did 
work, and it provided the final episode of M 

fun for all involved.

Art In America 

By Betsy l amp 

Art In America 

Art In America 
1983 CBS Records 

Though there have 
been a few exceptions 
(Men At Work, Adam 
Ant), radio stations 
rarely play songs from 
debut albums. When a 
band has a "different" 
sound — different, that 
is, from the Top Ten 
bands — most people 
never get a chance to 
hear them. One new 
band with a different 
sound that is getting 
airplay is Art In 

Art In America does 
not try anything new 
musically, but in- 
strumentally they are 

very good. They have a 
mellow sound which is 
enhanced by Shishonee 
Flynn's harp playing. 
Chris Flynn, Danny 
Flynn on drums and 
percussion, add just the 
right touch of jazz-rock 
fusion to give this band 
a well-rounded sound. 

While almost every 
cut is good, the group's 
concessions^) the Top- 
Forty song format does 
slightly dim the light of 
this album. The best cut 
is "If I Could Fly," an 
upbeat, breezy tune 
with an excellent guitar 
solo that really adds to 
the musical picture. 
Usually, a guitar solo is 
an excuse for a guitarist 


to show off, but this 
group does not need to 
show off. Every song 
displays their talents to 
the fullest. 

The title track, "Art 
In America," is 
currently getting air- 
play nationwide. It, too, 
is an excellent cut and 
one can only hope that 
other cuts follow this 
tune to the airwaves. 

Listening to this 
album is an enjoyable 
experience — it is 
definitely worth the gas 
it takes to drive to the 
record store. Art In 
America is a 
kaleidoscope of sound 
that can be enjoyed by

The Italian Garden 
restaurant is located 
"somewhere" on

Gourmet made the 
mistake of turning down 
North Lakeshore Dr. 
instead of going straight 
on South Lakeshore. 
After one hour and 
forty-five minute 
search around Cross 
Lake, we finally found 
what we were looking 
for. Inside, the Italian 
Garden has a small, 
conservative setting 
much like any other 
Italian restaurant. 

The menu offers no 
specific appetizers, but 
the dinner salad rates a 
"10" because of the 
homemade Italian 
dressing, and the garlic 
bread is a must. L.T.J. 
Gourmet devoured two 
loaves before our en- 
tres arrived. For all 
you lasagna lovers, La 
Giardino di Italian 
offers the best. Layers 
of noodles, imported 
cheeses, and specially 
seasoned meat make up 
this European delight.

Meadows features watercolors 

An exhibition of more 
than 30 watercolors and 
oils by Emil Holzhauer 
will open at the 
Meadows Museum of 
Art, Centenary College, 
on February 26, 1983 
and continue through 
March 31. 

Emil Holzhauer, who 
now resides in Niceville, 
Florida, was born in 
Schwabish Gmund, 
Germany, in 1887. He 
came to the United 
States when 19 years old 
and by 1909 was 
studying under Robert 
Henri (1865-1929) leader 
of the Ash Can School. 

Emil Holzhauer became 
a part of the New York 
art world during a very 
exciting period in 
America's art history. 
The first three decades 
of the twentieth century 
represented ex- 
traordinary invention 
and change — Stieglitz 
and his "291", the Ar- 
mory Show, the influx of 
European artists, the 
first wave of American 
Holzhauer exhibited at 
many New York 
galleries and the 
Metropolitan Museum 
and his work received 
favorable reviews in the 

New York Times. For 
over a decade, 
Holzhauer held a 
position in the front 
rank of American 

This retrospect 
covers his work from 
1901 through 1980. The 
exhibition was 
organized by the 
Pensacola Museum of 
Art, and is circulated by 
the Southern Arts 
Federation, of which 
Louisiana State Arts 
Council is a member 
made possible by funds 
from the National 
Endowment for the 

Graphic Arts and Print**

their excellent victory 
over Samford. 
Congratulations also to 
Libby Taylor, who was 
crowned Homecoming 
queen, and Cathy 
Amsler - 1st maid. 
Thank you Alyce 
Boudreaux for putting 
the Homecoming ac- 
tivities together. It 
seemed that everyone 
has survived the in- 
vasion of the HS 
children. (Are we 
getting older or are they 
getting younger?) It 
was nice of Donna M. To 
beam down for punk 
party and show us her 
true color. How about 
green for next year? 
Speaking of parties, 
thanks to all the 
fraternities for the 
deviant festivities of the 
weekend past. 

Among the rah-rahs 
this week: Polly Greve 
is the new Panhellenic 
President and Lynette 
Potter is the new 
secretary; Jenifer Cook 
was initiated into .//Win 
Clii . Karen Klusendorf 
is the new president of 
that organization and 
Connie Manning the 
new vice-president. Cie 
Hawkins, Cara Derrick, 
and Lisa Chaisson will 
be traveling to the 
Kennedy Center in 
Washington to perform 
My Sister in this House. 

I hope the future Dr. 
Christine Hummer can 
forgive me for 
neglecting her name 

last week from the list 
of new Alpha Epsilon 
Delta Initiates.

Jean said that Hank 
knew what he was 
doing. Franco said, "I 
love it." And we all did. 
The most recent 
weekend of our college 
careers has just pased 
and we had a rollicking 
time. The planning for 
High School and 
Homecoming Weekend 
was truly marvelous 
and a sincere note of 
thanks is extended from 
the head honcho, Chris 
Murphy, to all who 
made it possible. 

And, say, 
congratulations to 
former TKE Sweetheart 
and O.D. Libby Taylor 
for her second reception 
of the crown of 
Homecoming Queen. 
She did it under the 
guise of Kyla. We are 
still proud of Lisa and 
Thurndotte who graced 
the gymnasium with 
their presence on the 
court. We are mourning 
the loss of Phoebe, 
having recently learned 
she was put to sleep a 
couple of years ago by 

It is a wonderful thing 
that the Gentlemen won 
Saturday night's game 
and we hope they can 
perform as well this 
Saturday against that 
rugged Mercer crew. 
They're a tough bunch, 
but we can beat them, 

And one final 
milestone in history 
should be properly 
recognized. After 
coming from behind to 
defeat a foreign team in 
fussball, Brad and Kyle 
fought off a heated rally 
by Kirk and Robert to 
stake their claim as the 
number one duo. No one 
will know for sure 
because the dogs are out 
of town, sir!

Homecoming '<83 

Gents Win In Double O. T. 

If you were not in the 
Gold Dome Saturday 
night for the 
Homecoming game 
against Samford you 
missed the game of the 
season. The game went 
on forever (or at least 
the two over-times 
seemed like forever) 
before the Gents pulled 
ahead of the Samford 
Bulldogs on free throws 
by Willie Jackson and 
Napoleon Byrdsong to 
win the game 82-79. 

The game was close 
all the way to the wire. 

At the end of the first 
half the score was tied 
38-38. At the end of 
regulation play the 
score was tied 73-73. 
After one over- time the 
score was tied at 75-75. 
It was during the second 
over-time that the Gents 
finally found the edge 
that put them on top. 
Samford led 77-75 with 
two minutes left but 
with two minutes 
re ma i n i ng Bobo 
Thomas was fouled. 
Thomas made the first 
free-throw and missed 

the second which gave 
Jackson the opportunity 
to soar down the lane for 
the board to set up a 
Thomas jam which put 
the Gents up by three. 
Jackson was fouled and 
made both shots to give 
the Gents an 80-77 lead. 
Byrdsong made two 
free-throws to put the 
icing on the cake and 
make the Bulldogs final 
bucket meaningless. 
The Gents won the 
game 82-79. 

The win gives the 
Gents an over-all record 

of 15-12 and puts them in 
a tie for third place with 
Georgia Southern in the 
TAAC and sets up a 
Saturday home against 

High scorers for the 
Gents were Jackson 
with 27 points on the 
night and 10 rebounds, 
Eric Bonner with 20 
points and 7 rebounds, 
and Bobo Thomas with 
18 points and 6 

Netters Swing Into Action 

The Centenary Lady 
and Gent tennis team 
swung into action last 
week as the Gents laced 
Qklahoma City and 
Auburn Universities in 
two separate dual 
meets, and the Ladies 
traveled to Jackson. 

Mississippi to compete 
against Millsaps, 
McNeese, and 
Mississippi University 
for Women in a 
quadrangular meet. 

The Ladies opened up 
the two day meet 
Friday, February 25 

with a 9-0 victory over 
Millsaps. Saturday was 
no less productive for 
the Lady netters as they 
defeated McNeese 8-1, 
and MUW 7-2. 

The Gent netters 
competed at home on 
February 24 against 

OCU and lost 0-9, and 
again on February 26 
against Auburn and lost 
2-7 with Joe Prather 
chalking up wins in 
singles and again in 
doubles with Shawn

Ladies End Seaso 

Five Centenary 
seniors gave it their all 
in an NAIA District 30 
playoff game in Mobile, 
Alabama Monday night, 
but Spring Hill College 
shot a torrid of 18 of 22 
shots from the free 
throw line to defeat the 
ladies 00-52. 

For the Ladies, 
Tempie Ratcliff turned 
in a fine performance, 
scoring 19 points, Carla 
Hutchins scored 12, and 
Zebber Satcher, who 
fouled out with 6:07 left 
in the game scored 8 
points, Nancy Hultquist 
scored five and Penny 
Davis scored two. 

The game was tied, 
28-28, after the first half 

as the Ladies 
penetrated the Lady 
Badgers' defense and 
used 12 first-half points 
by Ratcliff. The 
Badgers jumped out to 
an 8-0 lead, but the 
Ladies caught Spring 
Hill with 8:05 to play in 
the half, tying the game 
20-20. The Ladies went 
up 22-20 on a Satcher 
turnaround jump shot, 
but the Badgers scored 
the next time down to tie 
it up again. The teams 
traded buckets the rest 
of the first half. 

In the second half, 
Ratcliff hit a 10 foot 
jumper and Hutchins 
added a 15-footer to put 
Centenary up 32-28. But 

the Ladies could

Master Plan to Be Complete 

in 10 Years 

By Emily Canter 

"Form follows function" is the 
Principle around which the Cen- 
tenary master Plan is designed. 
Drawn up in the spring of 1982 by 
Townsley, Schwabb and Asso- 
Cla tes, the plan is a detailed 
Sc heme of the proposed college 
Ca mpus. This plan should be 
c °nipleted over a period of ten 
ye *rs. The Master Plan makes 
Divisions for gardens, pedestrian 
^sterns, and a pond to be located 
^ the low area behind Haynes 


. hardens and landscaping pro- 
mts like the Crumley Gardens 
ave all been financed through 
end owments and donations. Ac- 
c °rdi ng to Dr. Loyless, Vice Pre- 


n t of the college, no beauti- 

;at *on will be done without this 

^ e of funding. 
er haps the most controversial 

project at this time is the Hodges 
Garden now under consturction. 
The rose garden will be planted 
and maintained through an en- 
dowment from G. W. James of 
Ruston in honor of his mother and 
grandmother Hodges. The James 
family has previously given money 
for a dormitory, tennis courts, and 
the T. L. James Chair of Religion. 

The present plan makes no 
provisions for additional build- 
ings for the campus. Dr. Loyless 
said, "I feel Centenary has enough 
of a physical plan now. Our needs 
are well met as far as buildings are 
concerned." Even though land is 
donated every year to the college, 
Centenary's land usage remains 
practical. "Centenary's business 
is education, not land specula- 
tion," Loyless said, "Eventually 
we would like to enlarge the 
school's boundaries to run co- 
terminous with King's Highway, 

Woodlawn, Wilkinson, and Cen- 
tenary Drive, but this will be in the 

Maintenance costs for existing 
buildings come from the General 
Fund. Some improvements, such 
as Mickle Greenhouse, refurbish- 
ing the Marjorie Lyons Playhouse, 
and a new ceiling for Haynes Gym 
have also been paid for from the 
General Fund. Additional im- 
provements to buildings are made 
when endowments accumulate 
enough interest to pay for the 
changes. James Dorm and Rotary 
Hall are Centenary's only en- 
dowed buildings. Dr. Loyless said, 
"We have to plan and be more 
deliberate in the upkeep of our 

Landscaping and renovation 
plans in the immediate future 
include the new rose garden, the 
planting of sweet oliver trees, and 
the redesigning of the Jackson 
Hall parking lot.

Cara Derrick, Cindy Hawkins 
and Shellie Sumners head the 
cast of "Come Back to the 5 and 
Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean," 
a play by Ed Graczyk. The com- 
edy-drama, to be guest-directed 
by Patric McWillaims, a graduate 
of Centenary College, opens to- 
night March 10, at the Marjorie 
Lyons Playhouse. "Come Back to 
the 5 and Dime, Jimmy Dean, 
Jimmy Dean" is set in an anti- 
quated five-and-dime in a Texas 
backwater, where a group of wo- 
men have gathered in 1975, for 
the twentieth anniversary of 
James Dean's death. Mona, 
played by Cara Derrick, claims to 
have had Dean's child while work- 
ing with him on the movie "Giant." 
She is the chief celebrant of the 
Dean cult and has gathered the 
remaining club members together 
to rehash the broken dreams and 
memories that the passing years 
have destroyed. Cie Hawkins 
plays Sissy, a club member who 
has remained in Texas working at 
the five-and-dime and Shellie 
Sumners is the mysterious stran- 
ger who appears and exposes 
everyone's illusions. 

McWilliams has previously di- 
rected "Ring around the Moon" 
for the Centenary theatre and is 
the resident costume designer for 
the Mac-Hayden Theatre in New 
York City where he now lives. 

Centenary graduate (1974), 
Leigh Elen Holloway has replaced 
Chuck Drury as the setting di- 

rector for this play along with the 
production of "My Sister In this 
House." Mr. Drury' s untimely re- 
signation from his contract left the 
theatre department in somewhat 
of a bind until Mrs. Holloway 
agreed to replace him. For a short 
while it looked as if the new play 
might have to perform without a 
setting director. According to Mr. 
Buseick, he and Drury never dis- 
cussed the matter, but he believes 
that Drury could have handled the 
situation in a more "professional 
manner," by waiting until the end 
of the semester to finish his con- 
tract with the school. Luckily, 
Mrs. Holloway is able to accom- 
pany the crew of "My Sister In 
This House" to the National 
American College Theatre Festi- 
val in Washington this April, work 
with the production of "Come 
Back to the 5 and Dime, Jimmy 
Dean, Jimmy Dean," and take 
over Mr. Drury' s classes at the 

After the current successes of 
the theatre department, "Come 
Back to the 5 and Dime, Jimmy 
Dean, Jimmy Dean" will sureyly 
prove to be another smashing 
production! The Centenary pro- 
duction runs March 10-12 and 17- 
19 at 8 p.m. There will be a 
Sunday matinee March 13 at 2 
p.m. Tickets are $6 for adults and 
Centenary students are admitted 
free of charge. 


We apoligizc for the delay in the distribution the The 
Conglomerate. The paper's new look is due partly to the 
fact that the Pied-Typer C ompany in now publishing it, 
and partly because we have returned to the easier-to-read 
five-column style. The paper will be out later than usual, 
but you can still pick up a copy in the dorms, the caf at 
dinnertime, Magale Library, Meadows Museum. Hamil- 
ton Hall, and the SUB. Thanks for waiting.!

Pride of Place 

Dr. Darrell Loyless 
Vice President 

The Master Plan For Campus 

I want to thank the students, 
(acuity and staff who participated 
in our meetings where we review- 
ed the master plan for campus 
improvement. It is in the forma- 
tive stages and we will use your 
constructive comments to refine 
the plan. 

Let me review again the thrust 
of the program. The plan is to 
make the grounds more functional 
for our students and staff. In most 
all cases, form has followed func- 
tion but with a commitment to 
make the areas of campus prettier 
than before. 

All projects will be started only 
after construction and endow- 
ment money is in place. This will 
ensure that such projects do not 
detract from our ongoing budget- 
ed program. It will also ensure the 
improved areas are properly fund- 

ed for upkeep. 

Certainly the drawings on dis- 
play are not exhaustive. As time 
passes, other areas may be given 
priority and drawings developed 
on them as well. Those of you who 
have provided comments on areas 
badly needing improvement have 
helped turn our attention to such 

It has been my conviction, for 
sometine, that we need to plan for 
our college's future. I believe we 
have all seen the development of 
such a plan for campus improve- 
ment. 1 1 will change over time as 
form will follow different functions, 
but a broad, rational outline is in 
place. With present consideration 
of our curriculum and a possible 
plan for our physical plant, we will 
go a long way to setting out our 
future on a rational study basis. 
With constant review and updat- 
ing, we will make Centenary a 
place of even greater pride, If you 
have further ideas or comments, I 
would appreciate hearing them.

A Strange Story 

In the spring of 1999, a resolute explorer trekked into the 
heart of that vast tropical undergrowth, the Rainforest, located 
deep in the central southern portion of what formerly was called 
the United States. 

"Come back!" he cried when his askari abandoned the 
expedition upon sighting a giant, spaghetti-like monster. A few 
rounds from our heros repeating rifle netted them all an Italian 
dinner, for which they paid dearly with indigestion. 

It had grown dark, and with the morning they found 
themselves in an enormous entanglement of titanic rose bushes. 
Fortunately the plants had evolved to where they didn't have 
any thorns. After a breakfast of "Cosmic Flakes," brought with 
them from civilization, our adventurers began exploration. 

"Look!" cried Alec Skidrow, "I think I have found some- 

Three days of furious hacking with machetes showed to 
sunlight a mouldy brick wall; and far down in the maze of foliage, 
near the ground in near- darkness of shadow, was a sign with 
criptic letters: CLINE HALL. 

Moral: "Twas just a garden in the rain, 
But when the sun came out again, 
School closed, students gone to war 
With monster rose-bushes- 
And God help the right!"

From the 
Wizard's Kettle 

By J. Alan Irvine 

Since my car started acting up 
and becoming increasingly trou- 
blesome, I have relied more an 
more on walking as my means of 
transportation. However, due per- 
haps to the winter weather, as of 
late I've stayed close to campus, 
not getting out nearly as much. 

Spring weather has been with 
us for some time now, so, lured by 
a pressing engagement, I set out 
Sunday morning to walk to my 
destination rather than casting 
about for a ride. In so doing I 
rediscovered the beauty of walk- 
ing, the whole world that people 
dashing past, locked up tight in 
their cars, never experience. 

Sunday morning, even mid- 
morning, the streets are deserted 
for the most part. What traffic 
there is sticks to the main routes, 
leaving the other streets fairly 
empty. Not even many people are 
out. This emptiness creates a 
quietness over everything in 
which one can hear the wind 
blowing through the trees, setting 
the limbs to dancing and bobbing. 
The wind, often rising in strong 
gusts, tossles and tumbles the hair 
and any loose clothing, enjoying 

its almost sensual game. 

In addition to the rush of the 
wind, an occasional bird sings. 
Not nearly as many as will soon be 
here, but enough to form a light, 
low- keyed chorus. 

Suddenly, colors abound. Light 
green fringes branches that but a 
week ago were brown and barren. 
Sprinklings of white stars, dark 
blue, purple, nestle deep within 
the deep, lush growth found only 
in spring before the lawnmower's 
first assault. 

Traveling like this, one meets 
many different fellow wanderers. 
An old lady and a young girl go by, 
perhaps just coming back from 
purchasing the fixings of Sunday 
dinner. An old man stands outside 
his house, playing with a white, 
energetic cat barely older than a 
kitten. A roving dog falls into step 
with me, tagging along for a few 
steps until destracted by some- 
thing in the leaves. 

I will, of course, be glad to get 
my car back and in working con- 
dition; the freedom it offers is a 
much needed luxury indeed. But 
even so, I think I'll continue like 
this one when I can. 

Letter to the Editors 

PAC and Proud 

Dear Editors: 

This is written in reply to last 
week's letter on P.A.C. It sounded 
like the author was a discontented 
member of the Admissions Force. 
Maybe the Admissions Force has 
nothing to do, but I would like to 
speak up in defense of the Devel- 
opment Force. We have had at 
least five meetings with our group 
and two of them were with the 
President concerning campus is- 
sues. We promoted Centernary 

College at the Louisiana State 
Fair and helped to raise over 
$30,000 at the Great Teachers' 
Scholarship Phonathon, in addi- 
tion to ushering at the basketball 
games. With all of this work I feel 
like I have earned my P.A.C jacket, 
and it means a lot to me. 

P.A.C. member and proud of it!

for... THE CONCERT! 

You arrive at the huge concert 
hall 30 minutes before the show 
begins. The air is heavy with a 
sickly sweet scent. Thousands of 
people mill around. You realize 

You examine the crowd through 
binoculars, buy a program and a 
T-shirt You are hit on the chin by 
a tennis ball. Someone who looks 
like a 1960's reject tries to sell you 
something that has a name you 
can't even pronounce. 

You duck through the crowd 
only to .find your seat already 
taken by a bearded man with a 
Harley- Davidson emblem branded 
on his forehead. Suddenly, the 
lights dim, the crowd roars, and 
5,000 Bic lighters glow in the 
darkness. The show has begun! 

Through a tangled forest 
arms and heads, you can see the 
stage 100 yards away. Tiny men 
leap about singing and playing 
instruments which are amplified 
by 60-foot speaker stacks. Your 
arms wave in a mad frenzy 
brought on by your hair, which is 
now on fire from a match care- 
lessly dropped from a balcony 30 
feet above your head. You think. 
"Wow! This is FANTASTIC!" 

The lights come up and now you 
must wait for the headlining band 
The person sitting on your left 
turns his (her?) head and drools on 
your lap. You notice that the 
bearded man has left your seat 
and you quickly make your waj 
there. As you sit, you notice he ha* 
left a present for you on the flo° r 
You pull your feet out of the 
digested mess and scan the a 
for an empty seat. You see one 
and it's...IN THE FRONT RO^ 

You've made it. Your lap is w et 
your shoes stink, and your chitf 
hurts, but here you are! The lig nts 
dim again, and in the light of t^ e 
now 10,000 Bic lighters, you se« 
that the girl next to you has bee 11 
reduced to a mass of quiverM 
flesh by the excitement. 

The band hits the stage 
keeping with tradition, the 
next to you slumps to the fl<$ 
gurgling happily. The band 
and it's better than it has Vji 
been before. The music! ^fj 
lights! The performers! The $ 

nibbling on your left shoe! 

After a rousing encore, the sn 
is over. You head home ^ 
enough memories to last a , 
time. Your favorite band M 1

hair is gone, your jeans Jt 
soaked, your chin is bruised, ^ 
your shoes are ruined. You sft^ 
yourself, "I'm coming back 
year. That was GREAT!!!"

pAC Leaders Respond 
to Editorial 

By Lisa Illing 

The President's Advisory Coun- 
cil, better known as P.A.C., was 
organized in 1979. This council, 
which is made up of selected Cente- 
nary students, gives the President 
input on students' feelings regard- 
ing campus issues. The council is 
divided into two task forces: 1) 
'The Admissions Task Force, and 
2) The Development Task Force. 
Each group has specific jobs. Ad- 
missions is supposed to assist 
with campus visits, participate in 
High School Weekend, promote 
Centenary in a booth at the Louis- 
iana State Fair, raise money in 
phonathons and assist in the an- 
nual Quiz Bowl. Development is 
supposed to provide a forum for 
advising the President on current 
campus issues, promote Cente- 
nary to all interested people, and 
assist in gift projects, phonathons, 
and fairs. 

In response to last week's letter 
to the Editors which specifically 
attacked the Admissions Force of 
P.A.C., Charlie Atkins, president 
of the council, siad, "This is my 
job; this is what I am paid for. A 
student would not be able to give a 
completely unbiased picture of 
the campus to a visitor; for exam- 
ple, he hates the CAF food, does 
not like the library, or a certain 
fraternity house. Also, one needs 
to know the history of Centenary 
most of the students know very 
little." He also said that he be- 
lieved that there would be more 
work for everyone if P.A.C. re- 
duced its membership and merg- 
ed into one group. 

This view was shared by Chris 
Webb, Coordinater of the Devel- 
pment Force. His concern was for 
the loss of Missy Morn, who was 
chairman of the Development 
Force, and graduated last Dec- 
ember, and the two secretaries 
from both forces. These positions 
are still open and need to be filled. 
Any P.A.C. member who is inter- 
ested please check with either 
Charlie Atkins or Chris Webb in 
Hamilton Hall. 

Dr. Webb, President fo the col- 
lege, was apologetic for the loss of 
contact between P.A.C. and him- 
self. He said that he wished the 
student who had written the letter 
had come to him first. He wants 
student input-even if it is nega- 
tive. After the election of a new 
chairman for the Development 
Force, he would like another meet- 
ing to continue talk on the beautif- 
ication project. 

With a little bit of reorganiza- 
tion, the council should be back in 
business again. However, this can- 
not be done without the help of 
P.A.C. members. 

Kicking off SUB week this year 
will be the annual foodfights on 
Hardin Field. There will be teams 
of 5 people with an entry fee of 
$10.00 per team. All campus or- 
ganizations are encouraged to 
participate in this activity. For 
more details contact the Student 
Activities Office. All entry fees 
should be in by Wed., March 16. 
The foodfights will be held on 
Friday, March 18. 


After all is said and done, please allow me to say this. High 
School Weekend was quite successful. Both in terms of 
potential students and the school spirit that was established by 
our student body. On behalf of my staff, I thank all of you who 
helped us with the most important event. 

John L. Lambert, 

Director of Admissions and Financial Aid.

Auditions Being 
Held at MLP 

By Mickey Zemann 

Auditions for the play "Whose 
Life Is It Anyway" will be held on 
Wednesday, March 16, at 7 p.m. 
in Marjorie Lyons Playhouse. The 
cast consists of nine male roles 
and five female roles. All positions 
are open except for the male lead, 
which has already been filled by 
John Gayle, an English major. 

"Whose Life Is It Anyway" is 
about Ken Harrison, a successful 
sculptor, who is paralyzed in a car 
accident and kept alive by sup- 
port systems in a hospital. Out- 
wardly he's cheerful and often 
very funny but he's overwhelmed 
by the fact that he has lost control 
of his own life. As the play begins, 

he is coming to the decision that if 
he can't live as a man, he does not 
want to exist as a medical 
achievement. His physician, how- 
ever, also a brilliant man, is utterly 
determined to preserve Ken's life, 
regardless of its quality. Finally, 
despite the pleas of the doctor and 
his involved nurse, Ken invokes 
the law of Habeas corpus and a 
judge joins the battle to dtermine 
- whose life is it anyway? 

Mr. Robert Buseik, chairman of 
the Theatre/Speech Department, 
hopes to see as many people as 
possible at the auditions, and 
added that "you don't have to be a 
theatre major to audition for a role 
in any play." "Whose Life Is It 
Anyway" will be opening this 
spring on May 5. 

As was announced, the Centenary chapter of the English 
Honorary Fraternity Sigma Tau Delta convened at the home of 
Dr. and Mrs. Anne Rogers for supper and a business meeting 
Sunday evening, Feb. 27. 

Officer elections followed a most delicious home-cooked 
meal (thanks again, Mrs. Rogers!); Todd Moore, Talbot 
Hopkins, and Mike Ragland were unanimously elected 
President. Treasurer, and Secretary, respectively. 

The group discussed possible future events, which tentative- 
ly include hosting Lawrence Meredith, a renowned writer, 
speaker, and film critic; holding evening poetry workshops aim 
readings in the Coffeehouse; showing some vintage films; and 
having more social gatherings. 


There are five good reasons 
why the new Centenary Wood- 
wind Quintet is a great success: 
Janet McKinney Scott, principle 
oboist with the Shreveport Sym- 
phony and a member of the music 
faculty; Stan Savant, principal 
flutist with the Shreveport Sym- 
phony and a member of the music 
school faculty; Henry Hooker, 
principle horn player with the 
Shreveport Symphony and mem- 
ber of the music school faculty; 
Andrew Brandt, principal bas- 
soonist with the Shreveport Sym- 
phony, who would be a member of 
the music school faculty if we had 
any student bassoonists, and 
Michael Williford, director of 
bands and assistant professor of 
music at Centenary. 

The quintet has been f ormed to 
help recruit students for the in- 
strumental program at Centenary. 
They performed several times 
this past fall and earned a stand- 
ing ovation at the Louisiana Music 
Educators Association state 
meeting held in November in Laf- 
ayette. If you know of a high 
school group interested in having 
the quintet perform, please con- 
tar Michael Williford, 869^5235.

Centenary Introduces 

For those of you who are interested in a liberal arts education 
with an emphasis in communication, the new communications 
program at Centenary will have special appeal. 

Like the pre-law and pre-med programs, the communications 
program is not itself a traditional academic major, but a sort of 
umbrella for a diverse selection of related courses. These 
courses emphasize the many aspects of communicating ideas 
and information, and may be combined with any of the 
traditional liberal arts disciplines to increase the number of 
career choices within your major. 

Dr. Michael.Hall, Chairman of the English Department, says 
that "to be 'in the program, students will need to take at least 
four of the approved courses," which include: 
COM 200: Public Speaking (TSP 200) 
COM 207: Business and Technical Writing (ENL 207) 
COM 211: Debate and Argumentation (TSP 211) 
COM 220: Discussion Practices (TSP 220) 

Introduction to the Mass Media (ENL 251) 
Advanced Public Speaking (TSP 300) 
History of Public Address (TSP 309) 
Broadcasting: Radio (TSP 310) 
Broadcasting: Television (TSP 312) 
Print Journalism: Reporting and Feature Writing 

COM 251: 
COM 300: 
COM 309: 
COM 310: 
COM 312: 
COM 352: 
(ENL 352) 
COM 352: 
(ENL 353) 
COM 354: 
COM 400: 

Print Journalism: Editorial and Critical Writing 

Advertising and Public Relations (ENL 354) 
Internship in Communications (ENL 400) 
Several of the courses-all of which are currently offered at 
Centenary-- will continue to be taught by local professionals like 
Art Shriver, producer of KSLA's PM Magazine; Lane Crocket, 
Amusements Editor for The Shreveport Times, and advertis- 
ing executive Bill Bailey Carter. 

It was Carter who initiated this last course- the Internship- 
which, in Hall's words, "holds the whole program together by 
giving the student a chance to try out a career while still in 
school." The hands-on experience that the Internship affords 
may spur the student on to pursue advanced study or to get a job 
in that area-or it may show him that what he'd thought he was 
interested in wasn't all that he had imagined. 

"We've had students working at the Shreveport Chamber of 
Commerce, in the Mayor's Office, at hospitals, and in our own 
Sports Information Office," says Hall. "The students work 
between five and ten hours per week and earn college credit and 
on-the-Job experience. The employer gives the student train- 
ing, supervision, and a grade for the course. It's great for 
everyone involved." 

The variety of activities in Internship could involve 15 
illustrated by the diverse jobs performed by three students who 
are currently taking advantage of the program. Junior Emily 
Lewing is working in the promotions department at Channel 1 2 - 
- KSLA, promoting news, PM Magazine, and new series from the 
network (CBS), and sometimes doing Public Service Announce- 
ments for the community. 

Senior Todd Moore is interning with Carter Advertising, 
where he performs a number of different jobs. Most recently, he 
has been involved in a market research program. 

Bess Robingson, also a senior, is currently working at the 
Shreveport magazine. 

For the undergraduate interested in the media, Hall recom- 
mends a liberal arts education with experience in communica- 
tion, emphasizing the worth of a broad background in a lot of 
subjects. The new communications program at Centenary is 
flexi hie enough to be easily combined with any major, and broad 
enough to offer a wide selection of coursed in whatever aspect of 
the field In which you may be interested.

Fowler Tells 
Students To 
Avoid Voter 

Baton Rouge... Commissioner 
of Elections Jerry Fowler told 100 
students at the University of New 
Orleans voter apathy is one of the 
greatest problems in today's elec- 

Fowler led the voter registra- 
tion workshop at the Louisiana 
Student Association's Annual 
Convention in New Orleans Sat- 
urday and urged students not to 
contribute to this voter apathy. 

The Commissioner of Elections 
had previously held a meeting 
with college student representa- 
tives in January to help in organ- 
izing college- age registration. 

"Registering to vote is easy," 
Fowler explained, "and is handled 
by the Parish Registrars of 

Reviewing voter registration 
requirements and procedures, 
absentee voting and voting on the 
voting machines with Fowler was 
Nat Bankston, Registrar of Voters 
in East Baton Rouge Parish. 
Fowler's staff illustrated registra- 
tion and election procedures with 
a film presentation. Demonstra- 
tion model voting machines and 
the new absentee voting equip- 
ment were made available by 
Fowler to give the students ex- 
perience in the operation of voting 
machines and absentee voting. 

"I'm delighted to see the in- 
terest these students have shown 
in wanting to promote registration 
and improve voter participation," 
Fowler concluded, "and I hope 
they will continue to be involved."

Senate Approves 
Pegasus Funding 

By Clay Robertson 

The March 8, 1983 Senate meeting was called to order by 
President Greg Blackman at 1 1-08 AM. Following the approval 
of the minutes from the previous meeting, Treasurer 
McCutcheon announced that the Mardi Gras holiday would cost 
the Senate $1327, which was the cost of keeping the Caf open 
one day. 

Tuesday, the Senate heard reports from three standing 
committees: 1) Entertainment; 2) Forums; and 3) Elections, 
and two ad hoc committees: 1) Course Evaluation; and 2) 
Senator Brown's Committee of Three. The Entertainment 
Committee announced that this week's SUB movie would be 
"Raiders of the Lost Ark," and Chairman Baughman urged 
everyone to attend. The Senate approved the rescheduling of 
Mardi Gras forum from March 10 to April 7. Diane Fowler of the 
Elections Committee announced that Molly Goodrich won the 
recent Judicial Board election, which had a 31% turn-out. 
Senator Ragland's Committee on Course Evaluation presented 
the Senate with sample copies of the letters to be sent out to 
gather information for his committee's course guide. The 
Senate then authorized the distribution of Senator Ragland's 

Once again, the hottest topic before the Senate was Pegasus. 
Senator Brown's Committee of Three, formed to ascertain the 
Senate's financial situation with regard to Pegasus, reported 
that $1500 was available from the Forums budget, i.e. the now 
defunct Kurt Thomas forum. His committee's recommendation 
was for the Senate to allocate $1300 for Pegasus. Following a 
Rebate concerning whether to fund Pegasus for $ 1 300 or the full 
$1500, Senator Karen Klusendorf introduced a motion to 
allocate $1400 for Pegasus. Senator Klusendorfs motion 
passed the Senate by a 10 to 3 vote. 

Under the heading of "Old Business" it was decided that the 
^ blood drive would be rescheduled for April 7, and no decision 
was reached concerning a campus nurse. Under "New Busi- 
ness" the Senate discussed the Conglomerate's advertising 
policy at this time. President Blackman announced that 
Centenary had been invited to compete in the Holiday- in-Dixie 
raft race. And a decision concerning the hiring of Julie Edwards 
as KSCL's station manager was put off until Ms. Edwards' 
standing as a full-time or part-time student could be 

The Senate was adjourned at 12:06 PM.

River Town 
Player Do It Again! 

By Mickey Zemann 

Hard work and long hours really 
do pay off - at least for the cast of 
"My Sister In This House" it has! 

After having a successful run at 
the Marjorie Lyons Playhouse, 
Centenary took its performance of 
"My Sister In This House" to the 
Louisiana State College Theatre 
Festival in Ruston. At the Fes- 
tival, the directors of all the 
competing plays awarded "My 
Sister In This House" the DI- 
Katie Robinson, the Louisiana 
State Director of the American 
College Theatre Festival, went to 
the regional meeting where she 
recommended that the perform- 
ance be viewed at the regional 

After performing at the regional 
level, the cast was once again 
awarded with the DIRECTOR'S 
CHOICE AWARD and selected 

to perform at the National Am- 
erican College Theatre Festival in 
Washington D.C. Only ten pro- 
ductions were asked to perform at 
this national level - which shows 
how talented the cast, crew and 
directors really are. 

"My Sister In This House" 
features two of Centenary's out- 
standing actresses, Cindy Haw- 
kins and Cara Derrick. The play 
introduces newcomer Lisa 
Chaisson. Along with all of this: 
Centenary talent is Ana Chappell, 
one of Shreveport's finest actres- 

The performance of "My Sister 
In This House" will be viewed at 
the Terrence Theatre in Wash- 
ington, D.C, on April 20. The 
cast crew and directors are being 
provided transportation, lodging, 
and expenses. 

According the Mr. Buseick, 
Wendy Kesselman, the author of 
the play, plans on attending the 
Washington performance. 

L.T.J. Gourmet 


Larry Morse

Jenny Loep 

L.T.J. Gourmet gathered to- 
gether once again to visit yet 
another eating establishment. 
When deciding where to go, we 
thought, "what do you think of 
when you hear the words, "TS 
Steak and Lobster?" Well, if you 
thought like L.T.J. Gourmet, you 
probably think of the words 
"Happy Hour!" However, we did 
think one step further to what this 
establishment is also known for, 
its food. 

T.S. Steak and Lobster is lo- 
cated on Kings Highway just 
across from Wal-Mart. It is the 
ideal setting for an intimate 
dinner before that all important 
Fraternity or Sorority Formal. 
Yes, you can dine by candlelight 

on such dishes as Prime Rib or 
Alaskan King Crab Legs. The 
menu also includes such delec- 
table items as marinated chicken 
and sumptuous lobster tail. Ex- 
tras include baked potato with all 
the trimmings, or sauteed mush- 
rooms. Also included with your 
entree is a trip to the ever- so- 
pleasant salad bar. 

Although the food is excellent, 
we suggest that patrons visit the 
popular pub before dinner as this 
could make one's long wait 
worthwhile. The service here was 
really slow (and we mean 
REALLY slow!) 

Dinner is served from 5:00 
Monday through Saturday. Visa, 
Mastercard, and American Ex- 
press credit cards are accepted. 
No checks are taken. Till next 
week, HAPPY EATING from 
L.T.J. Gourmet!

Quartet" Nothing Short of Superior 

By Betsy Camp 


Quartet *** l A 

1983 Chrysalis Records 

Once again, Ultravox have 
proved their superiority in the 
field of synthesizer rock. Their 
latest album, "Quartet' 1 follows 
"Vienna" and "Rage of Eden' 1 
as some of the best syntho- 
rock around today. 

"Quartet,*' produced by George 
Mail in. picks up where "Vienna" 
left off. The cuts rangefrom upbeat 
to ethereal, and every one is a 
delight in itself. 

The best song on the album is 
"Visions in Blue," which flows 
smoothly from a frightening begin- 
ning to a vocal/ instrumental cres- 
cendo that threatens to blow even 
the best speakers. This is Ultra- 
vox at its best. 

The first cut on the album, 
"Reap the Wild Wind," is the 
tune that is destined to make A- 
merica sit up and take notice of this 
tip English band. Airplay and a new 
video on MTV will bring this song 
to the attention of mass-market 

Every cut on this record has 
something different to offer. 

"Seranade" is a dance tune. 
"Hymn" will make Jerry Falwell 
cringe. "We Came to Dance" is 
the album's token sarcasm. Ultra- 
vox does not seem to have any 
problems with repitition. 

Now that the Human League has 
paved the way for syntho-rock, 
Ultravox (who were big in Eng- 
land before the League was ever 
thought of), can move into the 
foreground in the U.S. and take 
their rightful place at the top of 
the charts. 

Any credit given to this album is 
well deserved. Run to the record 
store if your car is out of gas.

I don't claim to be a sage, 
But happiness at any age, 
No matter what you say or do, 
Oft' depends on your point of view. 

If you always seek the bottom line, 

And let tomorrow's clouds hide today's sunshine, 

Perhaps your perspective is out of focus, 

Or else your act's just hokus pokus. 

If, due to an inflated ego, 
You always try to play the hero, 
Critics who "know you like a book," 
May cast you in the role of crook. 

If you always expect perfection, 
But show no love or affection, 
True happiness isn't for you, 
'Til you change your point of view.

Jackson Unanimous Choice 
For All-TAAC Team 

Centenary College's junior for- 
ward Willie, Jackson, the only 
unanimous choice for the second 
consecutive year, heads the All- 
Trans America Ahtletic Confer- 
ence basketball team for 1982-83. 
The announcement of the team, 
which consists of two five- man 
teams, was made by the TAAC 
commissioner Bob Vanatta. 

Jackson is a 6-6 All- American 
candidate from Heflin, La wh was 
named to the first team for the 
third straight year. He was also 
voted Newcomer of the Year as a 
freshman and Player of the Year 
last year as a sophomore. 

Jackson lends the TAAC in 
both scoring and rebounding, aver- 
aging 23.5 points and 9.4 rebounds 
per game. Jackson also ranks fifth 
in free-throw shooting, making 
145 of 189 from the line for a .767 
percentage. Jackson also ranks 
10th in the nation in scoring ac- 
cording to the NCAA Statistics 

Even though 'no other Cente- 
nary teammates made the first of 
second team, 'Eric Bonner and 
Reggie Hurd made the honorable 
mention squad Bonner, a 6-7 junior 

center from Shreveport, La., ranks 
14 th in scoring, eighth in rebound- 
ing, and fourth in field goal per- 
centage, averaging 13. points, 
grabbing 6.8 rebounds, and shoot- 
ing .525 percent (145-276) from 
the field, respectively. 

Albert Thomas, a 6-3 freshman 
forward from Macon, Ga., is the 
running for the Newcomer of the 
Year-along with Samford's Craig 
Beard. Thomas has helped the 
Gents down the stretch averaging 

20.6 points and grabbing 8.4 re- 
bounds per game in his last five 

Jackson has been outstanding 
in his last five games averaging 

26.7 points and grabbing 9.2 re- 
bounds per game. He individually 
won two games for the Gents, 
making a 14-foot jumper with four 
seconds left in an 86-85 win ovei 
Mercer and he made two free 
throws in the final seconds in the 
82-79 double overtime victory 
over Samford University. 

After 27 games this year, Jack- 
son has now amassed 1 ,8 1 0 career 
points and 758 career rebounds, 
averaging 21.5 points and 9.0 re- 
bounds in his three-year career. 

He is ranked third on Centenary'.' 
all-time career scoring list behind 
Tom Kerwin who has 1,910 caree: 
rebounding behind George Lett 
who has 820 career rebounds, and 
Robert Parish who has 1,820 ca- 
reer rebounds. 

Voted the Most Valuable Play- 
er in Louisiana last, year Jackson 
continues to be snubbed by coaches 
and sports writers across America 
for All- American honors. Just ask 
any coach in the south who the best 
player is and they will tell you Willie 
Jackson of Centenary College. 

Jackson is a multi-purpose player 
who inlisted as a forward but plays 
every position on the floor. He is a 
"can't- miss" player in the NBA, and 
when Jackson fits into a program 
where he only has to play one posi- 
tion, his talents will make him one of 
the best players in the country. 

"There is no limit to his ability," 
head basketball coach Tommy Can- 
terbury said about Jacksoa "He 
goes out there and puts on an incred- 
ible show and I think that's the best 
he can do, but then he comes back 
the next night and tops that per- 
formance. If there is a better forward 
around Yd like to see him" 

Centenary Gymnasts 
Seeking FirstNAIA Title 

Centenary College's power-lad- 
en women's gymnastic team, eight 
strong, will be in Pueblo, Co., 
March 11-12 looking for their first 
National Association of Intercol- 
legiate Athletics (NAIA) gymnas- 
tics title. The Ladies finished the 
regular season with a 6-2 meet 
record and are tabbed as the team 
to beat for the team title. 

Already seeded number one 
with an all-around team average 
score of 139.65, the Ladies boast 
five holdover All- Americans in 
seniors Jill Brown (a three-time 
All-American and beam champ- 
ion in 1980), Jennifer Forshee (a 
three-time All-American and Re- 
gion IV beam champion in 1982), 
and Lisa Greenshaw, sophomores 
Janet Stevensand Susan. Gibson, 
plus redshirt Diana Marble and 
Jessica Soileau, and newcomer 
Katrina Kellogg. 

The ladies, winners of the last 
four of five AIAW Division II 
titles, strongest competition will 
come from second seeded Winona 
State University of Winona, Minn, 
with an all-around team score of 
L38.62, and the number three 

seeded the College of William & 
Mary with an all-around team 
score of 135.20. 

Coming into nationals, Sylvia 
Ponce of Winona State leads in 
the all-around competition scor- 
ing for the season with an average 
of 36.15, followed by Cindv Greer 
of Tarlerton State University of 
Stephenville, Tx., with a 35.70, 
while Centenary's Brown is third 
with a 35.12 Stevens fourth with a 
34.95, Forshee sixth with a 34.85, 
and Gibson 12th with a 33.72. 

It's going to take a combined 
total team effort to bring home the 
national title this season with the 
barrage of injuries that has beset 
head gymnastic coach Vannie 
Edwards in the last two weeks. 

Forhee has been bothered by a 
sore back throughout the season 
and Soileau is still recovering 
from knee surgery she went under 
for torn cartilage damage last year, 
but Greenhaw dislocated her right 
big toe two wiiks ago in practice 
and Gibson tore her knee up and is 
questionable for the all-around 
competition at Pueblo. 

"We will definitely be after the

national title," coach Edwards 
said. ''Two of our all-around girls, 
Forshee and Gibson, are injuried, 
but I can assure you they will 
perform up to the best of their 

"Forshee and Gibson are hurt- 
ing but I expect a tough perfor- 
mance from both of them," Ed- 
wards added. "All we can do is go 
out and do the best job as we are 
capable wounded or not, and we 
will be happy. 

The Ladies went through a 
tough pre-season schedule and 
went head up with two teams 
ranked in the top five in the NCAA 
Division I rands. The Ladies first 
traveled west to the University of 
Arizona in Tucson where they 
suffered a 141.05-139.65 setback 
and then went south to face Louis- 
iana Stat University where they 
fell 174.75-169.60. At the time 
Arizona was ranked third and 
LSU fifth. 

"We have proved we deserved 
to be there," coach Edwards said. 
"It will take a positive perfor- 
mance from all eight of our girls to 
win the title, but I'm confident 
they can handle the pressure.

College Has 
Parking Problem 

By Jackie Pope 

Parking has become a very big 
problem this semester. Dean of 
Students, Dick Anders, says that 
there "has always been a problem 
with parking" on this campus, but 
this year "it has been worse." 

Anders said that one of the 
main problems is the visitors we 
have on campus every day. Most 
of them do not know the parking 
rules. This overloads students' 
parking lots, causing them to park 
in spaces that were not provided 
for them. Senior Adult students 
cause a parking problem on 
Tuesdays. This program will end 
April 1 so this problem should be 
alleviated soon. 

Another problem is the over- 
selling of parking spaces. Dean 
Anders said that a parking sticker 
does not guarantee the student in 
his lot The parking spaces have 
been over- sold 5-7%. The policy 
has been spelled out in the quick 
list which is an addition to the 
student handbook. "Students are 
provided with overflow lots for the 
fanes that they cannot find a 
space in their lots," Anders said. 

The main problem, Anders 
commented, lies with students 

parking their cars in the wrong lot 
for the sake of convenience. "If 
everybody parked where they're 
supposed to park, we would have 
minimal problems." Anders said, 
"When I left the cafeteria at 12:45 
today (Friday), there were eight 
unauthorized vehicles in Lot 4. 
After 4:30 p.m. students are al- 
lowed to use the faculty lot if they 
move their cars before hours the 
next day. In three years as Dean of 
Students, Anders has only had 
one car hauled off. For security 
reasons, Dean Anders will void a 
ticket if a woman on campus gets a 
ticket for parking in Lot 4 if she 
were afraid to walk from Lot 3. In 
return, they must move their cars 
by 7:30 the next morning. 

Dean Anders has included 
several spots for new parking lots 
in his plan for Campus Improve- 
ment. These locations include the 
north side of Marjorie Lyons 
Playhouse, the north side of the 
cafeteria, between Mickle Hall 
and Haynes Gymnasium, and in 
front of Rotary Dorm. Anders said 
that parking is "a big problem 
with the ten year plan." He agrees 
with a student who voiced his 
opinion at the Forum. "Parking 
lots are ugly but necessary." 

SGA Holds Weekly Meeting 

The Senate meeting of March 15, 1983 was called to order by 
Vice-President Kyle Labor at 1 1: 10 a.m., and the previous meeting s 
minutes were approved without objection. 

The Senate heard reports from its standing Entertainment 
Committee and its ad hoc Course Evaluation Committee. En- 
tertainment Committee chairpersons, Thurndotte Baughman, 
turned her portion of the meeting over to Kathy Turner Activities 
Director, who told the Senate about the events scheduled for b. U.H. 
Week. Miss Turner also explained that S.U.B. Week would have a 
country and western theme and run from March 18-24. Senator 
Mike Ragland's Course Evaluation Committee announced that it 
*ould begin organizing its information shortly after spring break. 

Under the heading of "Old Business," the Senate announced that 
*e Mardi-Gras forum would be on April 6, and the Blood Drive 
*ould be held from 9 to 4, April 7, in the S.U.B. Tuesday, the S.G.A. 
approved the constitution of a new student organization, Students 
Concerned with Social Issues. Senator Carolyn Benham announced 
th at she and Dean of Students Dick Anders were continuing to 
Search the feasibility of placing first aid kits in the dormitories. No 
n ew s ws available to the Senate concerning the Holiday in Dixie ratt 
rac e at this time. ..... . 

Under "New Business," the Senate discussed the possibility ol 
P'^ing additional lighting in front of James Dormitory. Secretary 
T hurndotte Baughman, a James Resident Assistant, was charged 
*»th ascertaining student feeling on the matter. 

The meeting was adjourned at 11:32 a.m.

Computer Age Reaches Caf 

By Clay Robertson 

The cafeteria is currently con- 
sidering going to a Vali-Dine/3 
System computer to replace the 
current meal ticket system. 

The new system would consist 
of: 1) a Central Processing Unit, 
which could contain up to 10,000 
account numbers, 2) a Program- 
ming Console, which provides a 
means of accessing a student's 
account, and 3) A Card Reader, 
which would read the card num- 
ber encoded on the meal card. 

According to Mrs. Dottie Dea- 
ton, Centenary's Food Service 
Director, the proposed system 
would benefit the caf by im- 

proving financial efficiency by an 
estimated two percent. This 
money would then be put back 
into the cafeteria's food budget. 
The system would also serve to 
reduce both replacement costs 
and the amount of food lost to 

Despite its advantages, the 
Vali-Dine system is not perfect In 
the words of Mrs. Deaton, "It's 
expensive!" The initial costs of 
the system would total almost 
$12,000, and would continue to 
cost about half that amount in 
each subsequent year. The con- 
tinuing costs of the system would 
consist of equipment rentals and 
card processing costs, both of 

which would go to Griffin Tech- 
nology, the manufacturer of the 
system It is still unknown by 
Dean of Students Dick Anders or 
Mrs. Deaton where the money for 
the system would come from or if 
the system's costs would be offset 
by the savings created. The Vali- 
Dine system would also restrict 
the caf to being solely a dining 
hall, rather than the student 
gathering place it currently is. A 
final problem with the system 
involves the meal cards contain- 
ing the meal ticket numbers. 
These would have to be processed 
in New York, which would mean a 
one- to two- week delay in the 
issuance of the cards. 

New RA's Announced 

The R.A. Selection Committee finished its work this past week. 
The students receiving Resident Assitstantships for the 1983-84 
Academic Year are: Hardin Hall - Lisa King, Sexton Hall - Nancy 
Jones, Roni Amels, James Hall - Thurndotte Baughman, Karen 
Armstrong, Kelly Crawford, Carolyn Benham, Laura Montgomery, 
and Wynn Burton, Rotary Hall - Tom Wuenchel, Don Barnes, 
Pierre Bellegarde, and Dale Pynes, Cline Hall - Alan Todd, Todd 
Anders, Chris Murphy, John Yianitsas, and Satbir Singh Bhatia. 

All R.A.'s will be attending the Spring Workshop April 5th and 6th 
to begin the initial phase of their training. They will return a week 
early in the fall to continue their training and to ready the residence 
halls for occupancy. 


Monday, March 14, the Cente- 
nary faculty voted on a new set of 
core requirements. After long 
discussion, the faculty failed to 
pass the new curriculum. In- 
coming students will continue to 
use the same care listed on page 24 
in Centenary's catelog.

From the 
Wizard's Kettle 

Dear Mom & Dad, 

I can hardly believe that the 
semester is so far advanced. Why, 
it seems like just last week I was 
home for Interim. And now it's 
almost time to come home for 
Spring Break. I can't wait to get 
back to mv own room, my own 
bed, real food, washing my clothes 
for free, cleaning up.. .mowing the 
lawn... digging the garden... paint- 
ing the house... Uh, are you sure 
it's time for me to come home 
again? . 

When I get home, could we have 
some ice cream for dinner? I love 
ice cream, but even though they 
have it in the Caf it's incredibly 
hard to get any of it. Why, just the 
other day I saw this guy named 
Mike Rikke trying to get some out 
of the freezer. The stuff was so 
hard he had to use a hammer and 
chisel. And he broke the chisel on 
it! Oddly enough, just the day 
before the ice cream was so soft 
people poured it into cups and 
drank it straight from the freezer. 

Remember how bad parking 
was around here last year? Well, 
can you believe that it's actually 
worse now? It seems that while 
building this new rose garden, the 
administration decided to get rid 
of piles of parking places, even 
though they've already sold par- 
king decals for them, creating an 

incredible mess. I know that the 
rumours that this was done de- 
liberately to finance the garden 
via parking ticket fines can't be 
true. In fact, I just heard that Dr. 
W T ebb, being the immensely 
warm-hearted and generous soul 
he is, plans to start bicycling to 
work and give his parking place to 
Bonnie Brown. Bonnie is current- 
ly engaged in a desperate search 
for at least one legal parking place. 

I have told you about the new 
rose garden they're building 
haven't I? Part of the New 
Beautification Program, it pro- 
vides quite a gathering point on 
campus. Almost every weekend 
you see people out enjoying it- 
climbing around in the trenches, 
tossing dirt clods at odd targets, 
playing guitars. Just yesterday 
Bess Robinson went out there 
and-but I'd better not tell you just 
what she did, little brother might 
be reading this. Anyway, when it 
rains, the trenches double as our 
long-awaited swimming pool. I 
just hope the garden provides 
nearly as much entertainment 
when finished. 

Guess that's about it. You did 
say the check was in the mail, 
didn't you? 


Your Son. 

Pegusus is now accepting contributions of art work, photography, 
poetry, stories, essays, etc. for its Spring issue. Submissions should 
be given to Alan Irvine, Mike Ragland, Bess Robinson, Pam 
Edwards, or Clay Robertson by Monday, March 21. A $20.00 prize 
will be awarded for the artwork or photograph used for the

Benbow & Canine 
(Eric) Speak Out 

Dear Editors, 

In this day and age it seems that 
we are quick to criticize and slow 
to compliment. Well, I would like 
to change this standard and say 
that in the February 24 issue of 
the Conglomerate, there appears 
an article by the Kappa Alpha 
Fraternity of Centenary. This 
article shows the brilliance of that 
chapter and the rousing theme of 
southern gentlemenship that this 
chapter so vividly portrays. Thank 
you Warde Leisman for being the 
man that I never could, and 
believe me, your fiasco in front of 
the student body can never be 
matched. Your right, that is why 
Centenary is Centenary. What a 
brilliant statement! That is why 
KA is KA. Well, 1 11 stand behind 
the team. In fact, I would have 
been on that very team, but I 
wouldn't have gotten to play very 
much because my parents couldn't 
have paid for a new athletic 
parking lot or for my own scholar- 
ship, even though I did play al- 
most two years of high school ball. 
Right Joe? By the way Tommy, 
how many players had to drive to 
Missouri because your family 
would rather fly? Oh, I'm sorry, 
didn't mean to let it slip. Anyway, 
back to the basic theme. Ok KA 
chapter, I'll raise some hell at the 
next home game I attend, but 
you've got to promise you wont 
turn me in to the Honor Court. At 
least not yet. By the way Mr. & 
Mrs., or collection, or group, or 
body of editors, I hope I spelled 
everything right. I've heard tales 
that some of the letters are so hard 
to read and have so many mis- 
spelled words that it is truly a 
reflection on the person or group 
itself. Don't worry though, the 
people reading this with anger can 

be consoled by the thought that 
whatever is said, nobody can take 
away the fact that the cannon in 
the front yard looks sooo nice and 
very impressive. Boom, Boom. 

Yours truly, truly, truly, 

Captain Benbow & Eric the

Caf Personnel 

Dear Editors, 

The inconsistency concerning 
the presentation of student I.D. 
cards in the cafeteria is appalling. 
Some people can slip by while 
others are harrassed, even in the 
case of illness. One day the caf- 
eteria workers are hunting for 
cards and the next they are 
nowhere to be found. 

The tone and rudeness of the 
lady's voice is unnecessary, es- 
pecially since those are the first 
words one hears when entering 
the caf. Just imagine, that harsh 
voice will give anyone an upset 

Why can't a little courtesy and 
consistency be shown at the door?

Master Plan 

Dear Editor: 

I was wondering if, like, the 
school's Ten Year Master Plan is, 
like, two Five Year Plans, or what?

Committee Considers 
Woes of the Student 

By Veronica Amels 

Though it may not be a widely 
recognized committee, it does 
exist. It exists to help with the 
development, philosophies, and 
objectives of student related ac- 
tivities. It is concerned with the 
student government groups, as- 
sumes a leadership role in de- 
fining standards of conduct on the 
campus, and takes on the respon- 
sibility for formulating policies 
concerning student government, 
citizenship, and recreational ac- 
tivities including sororities and 
fraternities. In short, the Student 
Life Committee at Centenary 
College takes care of all matters 
that affect student life (e.g. hou- 
sing, recreation, health). 

The committee can help the 
ov erall function of the campus in 
toany ways. For example, if stu- 
^ e nts wish to form a new organi- 
zation or want an organization 
instated because it has been 
Active, they must bring their 
lde as before the Student Life 
Committee. Students may also 

want to propose a new school 
holiday - the latest example being 
the two- day Mardi Gras holiday. 
The Committee's faculty and 
student members discuss the 
proposed suggestions and any 
problems they may entail. The 
committee develops guidelines 
for the control of the official 
activities calendar, including a 
charge to the person who keeps 
the calendar to decide within 
those guidelines which events 
may preempt times, dates and 

The committee's four faculty 
members includes Dr. Virginia 
Cralton, chairman of the group, 
Dr. Bedard, Dr. Hugh Cox, Mrs. 
Ella Edwards, and Dean of Stu- 
dents Dick Anders who acts as a 
non-voting advisor. The five 
student members are Greg Black- 
man, Jenelle Deprez, David Nel- 
son, Carole Powell, and Rishard 
Wallace. One member from the 
Board of Trustees, Katherine 
Cheesman, is also on the com-

Ground Zero to hold Peace Games 

By J. Alan Irvine 

You are one of the Joint Chiefs 
of Staff. Russia has just invaded 
the Mid- East oil fields, com- 
pletely sweeping aside the scant 
U.S. forces in the region. The 
President awaits your advice as to 
how to react Are nuclear weapons 
warranted? What do you tell him? 

Next month you'll have an 
opportunity to decide exactly 
that. During the four weeks of 
April, the organization Ground 
Zero will conduct a game called 
Firebreaks to enable people to 
confront situations such as the 
above first-hand. 

Dr. David Throgmorton, a 
Ground Zero representative in 
Shreveport, explains that the 
game is an attempt to introduce 
people to the issues and options 
involved in the various interna- 
tional crises that continually make 
headlines today. The game, like 
Ground Zero itself, neither sup- 

ports nor caters to any particular 
political position. It endeavon 
merely to educate and promote 
further thought 

All the participants in the game 
will be divided into two groups, 
each functioning as an advisory 
council like the Joint Chiefs of 
Staff, one for the U.S. one for the 
USSR, Each group will posess 
three types of stratgic informa- 
tion: some only their group will 
have, some both groups will have, 
and some both groups will have, 
but each group will have a slightly 
different version and interpreta- 
tion of it 

Each week the players will 
-eceive a packet of information 
from Ground Zero detailing some 
international crisis designed 
arouncT real world events-actual 
or projected. Acting on the in- 
formation they possess, their 

Visiting Fellow 

Dick Clark, former U.S. Senator from Iowa, will come to Centenary College 
as our 22nd Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow. Sponsored by the Gannett 
Foundation, his March 21-25 visit will include meeting classes and special 
groups to bring the "real world" to the "ivory tower." Among his topics of 
discussion, in addition to international education, are Foreign Policy, How 
Congress Works, and Power of Special Interests in Politics and 
Government, to name a few. 

personal judgement and ideolo- 
gies, the members of each group 
must respond to the situation; and 
consequently to the other group's 
actions, until the situation is 

The next week, they will receive 
not only the next crisis, but also 
the official version of the former 
crisis and its "real" solution. The 
situations will escalate in intensity 
and danger until the fourth and 
final one. 

The name Firebreaks comes 
from the firelanes cut through 
forests in attempts to contain 
possible forest fires and prevent 
them from spreading and be- 
coming uncontrollable, the objec- 
tive of the* players in the game. 
Anyone interested in participa- 
ting should contact Dr. Throg- 
morton before April. 

Clark to Speak 


In an informal lecture spon- 
sored by Centenary International 
Student Organization (CISO), 
former U.S. Senator Dick Clark, 
Centenary's twenty - second 
Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow, 
will speak on the importance of 
international education. 

During the span of his impres- 
sive political career, Clark has 
been a U.S. Senator (from Iowa) 
and a leader in the areas of foreign 
policy; he has chaired subcom- 
mittees on African Affairs; and he 
has served on the Foreign Re- 
lations Committee and as Ambas- 
sador- at- Large. 

Of special interest to CISO is 
the fact that Clark, too, was a 
foreign student, having attended 
Wiesbaden and the University of 
Frankfurt (both in East Germa- 

Specific topics that Clark will 
discuss include the role of the host 
college and the responsibilities of 
students while studying in a 
foreign country. 

You are cordially invited to 
attend Clark's lecture, which is 
scheduled for Monday, March 2 1 .

This sure has been a nutty week 
f or the Centenary College 
TEKE's. At our car wash Sat- 
urday we raised almost $500. Isn't 
that great? Many thanks go to 
O.C. and STIGS! By now TKE 
basketball is probably flounder- 
ing, about to be bashed against 
the intramural refs. However, we 
are anxiously awaiting the Softball 
season when we will take the place 
by storm or be taken by storm. 

Don't forget, track fans, that 
Mice Races are this Friday and 
the line-up looks good. We went 
out and caught all the mice so they 
are fresh off the natural turf. We 
want to encourage everyone to 
attend our infamous den of in- 
iquity and engage in a night of 
raucous behavior. 

Oh yeah, congratulatory memos 
have gone out to our new initiates. 
They survived the rigorous trek 
and we are so proud of them. 
Come on you guys, let's all get 
together and promote good cheer. 
And there was much rejoicing. 

I reckon the highlight of the 
week was Scott Yudin's having 
received the Active of the Week. 
Disdainful of the peril, Scott 
stood up to Karl's incessant ri- 
dicule and gave him what for. 
Karl, who has now been reduced 
to a quivering blob of insecurity, 
had finally gone too far when he 
tried to antagonize The Kid. One 
final complimentary note is ex- 
tended to Scott Davidson who 
was promoted to Assistant Man- 
ager of Clancy's Restaurant. 
Don't bother him, Kris-not now.

Beauty Pagent 

What is the first thing that 
comes to mind when you hear the 
works ''beauty pageant? 1 ' You 
may think a about girls in beau- 
tiful evening gowns, or you may 
think of girls in sexy bathing suits. 
Unfortunately, very few people 
are aware of the financial benefits 
that a pagent contestant can 
obtain by competing well in a 

Centenary College is currently 
considering sponsoring a "Miss 
Centenary Pagent/' The pagent 
would be part of the "Miss Am- 
erica Pagent' 1 system, which is the 
largest scholarship fund in the 
world for woman - awarding over 
two million dollars a year in 

If Centenary decides to go 
ahead with the "Miss Centenary 
Pagent" the winner would receive 
a scholarship from Centenary. 
The amount of this scholarship is 
undetermined and will depend on 
the amount of money donated into 
a specific fund for the Miss 

In past years, Centenary has 
entered contestants into the 
"Miss Louisiana Pagent" and has 
usually done quite well, frequent- 
ly ranking in one of the top four 
spots. If Centenary does re enter 
nto the "Miss Louisiana Pagen" a 
lot of work must be accomplished 
in a short period of time. People 
would be needed to work back- 
stage, to work on the lighting, to 
call alumni to start the scholar- 
ship fund, and the promote and 
advertise the pagent - along with 
the contestants themselves. 

In order to be a pagent con- 
testant, a female must be between 
the ages of 17 and 26 by Labor 
Day. She must be a full time 
student, either an undergraduate 
or graduate. Also, she must be 
single, never having been married, 
or having a marriage annulled. 

The pagent would consist of 
four categories: evening gown, 
swim suit, talent, and interview. 
However, the talent and interview 
would be weighted so that a 
contestant's personality would be 
of greater importance than the 
actual beauty or "looks." 

A lot of work would have to be 
done if Centenary were to have a 
pagent this year. That is why the 
Administration would like to 
know if there is enough student 
interest before beginning work on 
the pagent. Anyone interested in 
either working on the pagent or 
being a contestant should leave 
their name at the Dean's office.

L.T.J. Gourmet 


Larry Morse, Tina Hackett, 
Jenny Loep 

All noon time eating spots are 
the same. There are Wendy's, 
McDonald's, and Burger King to 
choose from, right? Wrong. We 
found that there is a place open 
almost all day for an exciting 
luncheon-the Perivinkle, located 
in Pierremont Commons on Line 
Avenue. The Periwinkle has been 
in business since Christmas of 
this past year. Inside, you'll first 
notice the tray of scrumptous 
desserts. The atmosphere resem- 
bles that of an early American tea 
room. It adds sunshine to even the 
dreariest of days. 

The menu consists of puffins. 
And club puffins. And ham and 
cheese puffins. And any other 
puffin one can possibly think of. A 
puffin is similar to a turnover 
without the fruit filling. It is a flaky 
type of pastry roll. You can choose 
from many types of puffins-tuna,^ 
ham and cheese, turkey, beef and . 
Havarti, etc.. In addition to puf-. 
fins, the Periwinkle serves out-of- , 

this world omelettes, sea food 
gumbo, and soups. The food was 
excellent, yet the taste was only 
part of our experience. Each 
entree was beautifully prepared. 
The omelettes were delicately 
sprinkled with cheeses, almonds, 
and green peppers. AH of the 
ingredients were fresh and crisp. 
Desserts are another specialty of 
the Perivinkle: croissants and 
jam, cheesecakes, and the highly 
recommended Black Forest Cake. 
After one piece of this, L.T.J. 
Gourmet decided to buy the rest 
of the "Forest". 

The menus are arranged in 
three forms; coffee, brunch, and 
tea. Prices at the Periwinkle are 
inexpensive, considering the qua- 
lity of the food. Owner Virginia 
McKay recommends students of 
Centenary to join her on Saturday 
morning for brunch. The Periwin- 
kle is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 
p.m. daily excluding Sundays. 
Checks and cash, of course, are 
welcome. No credit cards accep-

S.U.B. Week Approaches! 

Centenary has sponsored S.U.B. Week in the past to raise funds 
for renovating the Student Union Building. Items such as blinds, 
carpets, couches, tables, and chairs, as well as the elaborate stereo 
system have been purchased from the revenues from this week- long 
series of events, usually held during the spring semester. 

This year's S.U.B. Week takes place March 18-24. We will kick off 
the week's events with the Third Annual Food Fight in Hardin Corral, 
4 p.m. on Friday, March 18. 

We are asking that your group provide a team consisting of five 
members each. There is a $10 entry fee per team ($2 per person). 
You can have as many teams as you would like. 

Since midterms will be ending around the 18th, this would be a 
great opportunity to release repressed frustrations and anxiety while 
having a lot of fun! 

If you wish to enter your team, send a list of team members plus the 
$ 1 0 fee (per team) to Kathy Turner- Director of Student Activities-or 
drop it by the Coffeehouse by March 16. 

Remember-SlO fee and no later than March 16.

Basketball Season Ends With a Bang 

The Centenary Gentlemen 
ended their 1982-83 basketball 
season Tuesday afternoon with a 
disappointing 88-83 loss to Ark- 
ansas-Little Rock in the semi- 
finals of the Trans America Ath- 
letic Conference basketball tour- 
nament on the latter' s home court. 

The Gentlemen, winners of 
their last 10 of 14 games, finished 
the season with a 16-13 overall 
record and tied for third in the 
regular season TAAC race with an 
8-6 mark. Even though the Gents 
failed to qualify for the NCAA 
post- season basketball tourna- 
ment head basketball coach 
Tommy Canterbury felt the sea- 
son was a success. 

'Til tell you one thing," Can- 
terbury said following the Gents 
five point loss to the Trojans. 
"There's going to be a next year 
and we're going to take it all. I 
know Fm putting a lot of pressure 
on us early but we're going to win 
it and you can write that down. 
This team came further along 
than any team I have ever coached 
at Centenary." 

Canterbury has a lot of hard 
facts to back up his quick tongue 
and he knows it. The Gents return 
four starters and one part-time 
starter and the TAAC's Most 
Valuable Player in 6-6 forward 
Willie Jackson. Jackson was voted 
to the All- Tournament team for 
the third straight year and was the 
only unanimous choice on theyAll- 
Conference team for the second 
consecutive year. 

In addition, the Gentlemen re- 
turn their top five scorers and 
rebounders. As a team the Gents 
return 67 points of their offense 
and 27.1 of their rebounds. The 
Gents averaged 77.1 points and 
34.9 rebounds per game this 

Jackson, featured in the NCAA 
News Release March 2 as the 10th 
leading scorer in the nation, fin- 

ished the year averaging 24.0 
points and 9.3 rebounds per 
game. Returning with Jackson are 
Eric "Bad News" Bonner aver- 
aging 13.1 points and 6.8 re- 
bounds, Albert Thomas 11.2 
points and 5.9 rebounds, Reggie 
Hurd 10.7 points and 2.1 re- 
bounds, and Vance Hughes 8.0 
points and 2.8 rebounds per 
game. Jackson, Bonner and 
Hughes will be seniors, Hurd a 
junior, and Thomas a sophomore. 
Jackson, Bonner, Thomas, and 
Hurd are starters, while Hughes 
was a part-time starter. 

Jackson, Centenary's All- Amer- 
ican candidate and Mr. Every- 
thing, almost singlehandedly led 
the Gents to victory tying a career- 
high with 35 points against the 
Trojans. But Arkansas' 7-foot-2 
center Jimmy Lampley (28 points) 
and 6-9 forward Mike Rivers (26 
points) ^ombined for 54 of Little 
Rock's 88 points. 

Lampley was voted the TAAC 
tournament MVP while Jackson 
and Rivers were also named to the 
all- tournament team. Also on the 
team were Vaughn Williams of 
Arkansas-Little Rock, Eric High- 
tower of Georgia Southern, and 
Tony Gattis of Mercer. 

The lead changed hands 17 
times and was tied five times 
during the game. - Centenary 
jumped out to a quick 10-2 lead 
but Little Rock made up the 
margin within 37 seconds and 
took a 43-42 halftime ad-antage. 

In the second hfc he Gents 
went up 68-65 following J ackson's 
three-point play with 9:03 left but 
when Bonner fouled out minutes 
later the Gents were without a big 
man inside. To further hinder the 
Gents Jackson fouled out with 
1:31 left and the game was over 

"When you lose two-thirds of 
your inside game against a team as 
big and strong as Little-Rock's, 

Friday at 9:30 in the S.U.B. 

> ruwitm 

it's almost impossible to win," 
Canterbury confessed afterwards. 
"They have the best one through 
ten man team in the league and it 
showed in the final three minutes. 
They just wore us down." 

Despite losing the contest the 
Gents led the league in scoring , 
averaging 77.3 points/per game. 
The Gents have led the league 
four of the last five seasons. In 
addition, Jackson led the league 
in both scoring and rebounding 
He also finished fifth in free throw 
percentage with a .767 mark. 

Bonner finished the season 
14th in the TAAC averaging 13.3 
points, fifth in rebounding aver- 
aging 6.9 rebounds, and fourth in 
field goal percentage making .526 
percent of his shots. Napoleon 
Byrdsong, the TAAC's all-time 
assist leader, finished the season 
third in assists averaging 5.5 per 

Byrdsong is the only starter 
the Gents lose to graduation. 
Byrdsong leaves Centenary as the 
all-time assists leader with 613 
career assists averaging 5.5 as- 
sists per game in four seasons. 

"People aren't going to realize 
how much we miss Byrdsong next 
year," Canterbury said. "He is the 
spark that gets us going. We are 
going to have to look hard and long 
to find a player as good as he is." 

The Gentlemen secured their 
fourth consecutive winning sea- 
son, (second best in Centenary 
history, behind coach Larry Little 
who put together five straight 
winning seasons from 1972-1976), 
during the 1982-83 season. Be- 
sides winning on the court, the 
Gents also won in the stands. 

During the 1982-83 season, 
36,726 Gent fans watched the 
Gents play, an average of 2,448 
fans per game. During the Robert 
Parish era, 31,400 fans attended 
Centenary basketball games, an 
average of 2,854 fans per game. 
Centenary's home court allows for 
4,000 fans when it's full.

Gymnasts Break 
Centenary Record 

The Centenary Gymnasts failed 
to capture their first National As- 
sociation of Inter- collegiate 
Athletic Gymnastics title Friday 
in Pueblo, Co., as the Ladies came 
up .2 of a point short to win the 
national title. 

The College of William & Mary 
won the title with a 137.40 while 
the Centenary Ladies scored a 
137.20 led by Jennifer Forshee 
and Jill Brown in the all-around 
with 34.65 and 34.30, respec- 
tively. Both Forshee and Brown 
became the first 1 four -time All 
-Americans in Centenary history. 

Brown, a senior from Rockwall, 
Tex., came away with the top 
honor at the National NAIA Gym- 
nastics Meet Saturday night, 
being named the NAIA Gymnast 
of the Year. The gymnast of the 
year award is voted on oy the 
coaches. It deals with perform- 
ance, personality and contribu- 
tion to the sport. 

"It was a super meet," head 
coach Vannie Edwards said. "We 
didn't miss - we hit. I think we , 
only missed twice the whole meet. 
We did as good as we are capable 
of, considering our physical con- 
dition. William and Mary did a 
good job and they deserved to win 

the national title." 

Along with Forshee and Brown 
sophomores Janet Stevens and 
Susan Gibson performed well in 
the all-around Friday night. 
Stevens scored a 34.20 and fin- 
ished sixth while Gibson scored a 
33.20 and finished 16th. 

On Saturday in the individual 
competition Forshee finished 
third on vaulting with a 8.90 and 
Brown fifth with an 8.75. On bars 
Brown and Forshee tied for sixth 
each with an 8.60. On beam 
Forshee finished, sixth with an 
8.50 and on floor Stevens was 

"I'm as proud of this bunch as 
any group I've ever had," Ed- 
wards said. "They gave it their 
best and I think they will be back 
again next year." There were 172 
individuals competing in the two- 
day tourney and 16 teams com- 
peting for the team title. 

The Centenary Ladies con- 
cluded their 1 983 season with a 6 - 
2 regular season meet record and 
a second place finish in the NAIA 
Gymnastics Championship. Com- 
peting for the last time for the 
Ladies were Forshee, Brown, and 
Lisa Greenhaw. Greenhaw finished 
22nd on vault with a 8.65, and 
12th on beam with a 8.25.

Rifle Team: 

Shooting Straight 

Centenary's Rifle team has 
;ome along way since last year. 
The team did not win a single 
match in its first semester of 
existence, but has come back 
strong this semester and has not 
finished below the tenth place in 
any of the three meets that it has 
participated in, and has managed 
to defeat several nationally 
ranked teams. The team members 
are Adam Harbuck (the teams 
overall high scorer), Joe Jewell, 
(the only senior member of the 
team and most improved shoot- 
er), Steve Watson, and Rick 

The teams first meet was 
February 5 at Northwestern State 
University. Centenary scored a 
1,871 to clench second place 
behind home team, N.S.U. who

By. Nohe Can't 
Special to the Kommisserate 

"What can I say? She fogs up 
my glasses... and I don't even wear 
glasses!" So spoke Hairold Chris- 
tensen, Professor of Economics 
and all-around good guy. "I know 
teachers aren't supposed to fall in 
love with their students, but it's 
not something I planned. It just 

And so it did. Whether it be in 
the classroom studying Keyne- 
sian Crosses or knocking down 
ans. at the local bowling alley, Dr. 
Cisterson's companion extraordi- 
naire never leaves his side. 

So who is this lady love; this 
seductive student; this coercive 
coed that has won the heart of 
Cemetary's Earl of Economis? 

"Let's call her Joann," squeak- 
ed e good doctor "That's a nice

'We're paying the man to teach

Sharing a suite with Dr. Cis-

Washington, Joan soon became 
accepted and at times, unnoticed 
by her fellow student travellers. 

"We even found ourselves cal-

the students." I mean, Doc's a cool 
guy. He lets us party, we let him 
party, ya know?" 

"Bottom line, she gets fried and 
is fun to party with," blurted 
another student. "I think Doc's a 
lucky man. So he's got two kids. 
That's a detail. 

What lies ahead for Cemetary's

Duckyfoot Webb, President.

Oh student senate, take my money and please spend it wisely. We know

But somone in the post office has

Why is everyone gripping about

fication Committee wants to put 
in? I mean REALY!! It will solve 
the parking problem, won't it? I 
mean, come on folks, I'd much 
rather park at the new pond and 
watch submarine races after a 
date rather than watch Smitty 
watch me make out with my date!! 
Anyway, everyone knows that 
there aren't any parking places in

like mosquitoes. I mean there is a 
cure for malaria, isn't there????

America's Teenager The winners are... 

Dear Editors, 

It is a relief to this student to 
finally see the quality of our 
Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellows 
speakers finally reaching the 
standards that should be asso- 
ciated with Centenary College. 
The Visiting Fellows program 
allows fortunate students, such as 
ourselves to make acquaintences 
(and even lasting relationships) 
with these quests. A word of 
thanks to the Gannett Foundation 
for sponsering this worth while 
program. Upon recieving news of 
this weeks speaker, I becames 
immediately impressed at the 
creditials that he shows. This 
senator from Iowa is impressive 
indeed. Not only does Senator 
Dick Clark have a strong voice on 
the hill, but his background lends 
inspiration to us all. Who could 
believe a young man from Iowa 
could have grown up to add being 
a senator to the list of his 
achievements. Politically, he has 
given this nation strength and 
vigor. Socially, he has shown us 
that we too can stay young when 
the society around us is aging. He 
represents the pureness and 
cleanliness of the boy next door, 
and in a way can be compared very 
closely to Ronnie Reagen himself. 
A politicain with the background 
of an entertainer. I have admired 
Senator Clark since those first 
days of American Bandstand, 
when parents would shriek and 
gasp at horror at the way their kids 
would run home from school, turn 
the TV on and listen to Senator 
Clark interview Elvis or even 
Fabian. I have grown up with you 
Senator. Thank you for making 
me smile and for putting the first 
note of music in my heart. May 
you pass a bill that will enable you 
to never age. 
Yours truly,

Dear Eggitor, 

How come there hasn't been 
announcement of the High School 
Weekend $100.00 hunt? I wanna 
know... Yea, Eggitor didn't you 
know that four people got their 
heads together and figure out the 
$100.00 hunt secret place and 
that wasn't easy to do, even with 
four brains! Now Eggitor, here is 
the big announcement - ready for 
the drum rollllllll, it was good ole 
senior Sharon Ferguson, Jon 
Lindau, junior Roni Amels, and 
her high school roommate Susan 
Uling - She's Lisa Illing's cute 
little sister. So there Eggitor, the 
drum roll is finished and the 
announcement has been made!

Quit Being 
A Whiner 

Guess what kiddies? We get out 
for Spring Break tomorrow. And 
we don't come back until April 5. 
So, if you think we're going to get a 
newspaper out by the 7th, you're 
insane. Look for the paper the 
following Thursday, maybe we'll 
put one out, maybe we won't It 
depends on if we feel like it. So, 
don't come whining up to a staff 
member, (especially an editor), 
saying, "Is the paper coming out 
today?" We hate that!!!! So get off 
our backs or else put out your own 
paper. Or should I say TRY and 
put out your own paper. You deal 
with Ham-It-Up Hall, student 
complaints, THEN pop off.. So

Okay, so it's time to write this 
mess again. Big deal. I mean, like, 
every week I have to pull out this 
beat- up old notebook and sit 
down at my desk when I'd much 
rather be outside enjoying the 
nice spring weather, maybe even 
with some beautiful woman 
spreading suntan oil all over my 
body or something. But do I get to 
do that? No. I have to sit here, 
locked up in my dark and dreary 
room and write. And then I have to 
be funny. Funny! So what if maybe 
I don't feel like being funny? You 
ever have one of those moods 
when you just feel like taking a 
Smurf doll and smearing it with 
Lasagna, then feeding it to Gar- 
field the Cat? Or buying a dozen 
dead roses and sending them to 
Pres. Wombat? Days like that I 
have to sit down and acutally be 

And then, what do I get for my 
minutes and minutes of hard 
work. I get called unamerican, a 
godless communist, and who 
knows what else. Forestfire Star- 
let demands that I spend my time 
in Jackson Hall constructing me- 
morial business buildings in his 
honor. And I find out Pres. 
Wombat doesn't even read my 
column anymore. And here I am 
trying to cheer him up, bring a 
little light into his life. Well, that's 
gratitude for you. And I don't even 
get paid for all this. Everyone else 
on this paper gets paid. How come 
I don't get paid? I've got seniority 
and everything (except of course 
that beautiful woman with the 
suntan oil. A nice salary would 
help make up for that though).; 
With all I have to put up with 1 1 
ought to get paid. Why I bet Pres. 
Wombat even has my typewriter 
bugged. I ought to go on strike.] 
Yeah, strike! That's it. If I don't 
start getting paid I'll go on strike,

"This school is our home, 
we think it's worth defending' 



By J. Alan Irvine 

The sun has long since risen, 
hot and dry, on that fateful day. 
The dusty desolate plain of No 
Man's Land stretched down hill. 
The men lined the trenches an- 
xiously awaiting the enemy's ap- 
proach. It would come soon. 

Only a short while ago, these 
valient troops had peacefully 
lived out civilian lives. Then the 
cry went out across the land. The 
age-old enmy was rising again. 
Armed now with a 10 Year Plan, 
the Beautification Program 
reached out from its dark liar in 
the depihs of Ham- it- up Hall, 
spreading its evil stain across the 
land once mo~e. Already the 
grassy sloaps ne ir Ham-it-up had 
fallen prey to the Master Plan, and 
the Rose Warriors were on the 

Lovers of freedom and justice 
flocked quickly to the tattered 
student banner. Armed with a 
hodge-podge of weapons, they 
quickly dug in, ready to sacrifice 
everything in defense of hearth 
and home and memorial business 

Yet even in the face of the 
blackness of the Master Plan, 
seme inhabitants of the land 
spoke out against the slaughter of 
war, crying for a better way to be 
sought. But in their hearts, all 
knew that there was no other way. 

The generals gathered, discus- 
sing battle plans over and over 
again The men fretted in the 
confines of the trenches. Then 
suddenly, there below - hordes of 
the Rose Warriors, the maroon 
and white armor gleaming in the 
sun, their thorn weapons dark and 

Barrage after barrage of thorns 
and pollen bombs the Rose 
Warriors hurled against the de- 
fenders. But the men crouched 
low in their trenches, safe from the 
scathing fire, waiting as the Rose 
Warriors drew closer. 

Finally the enemy was within 
reach. With an exultant cry the 
defenders leapt from the trenches 
and charged the foe. Their first 
assault wreaked devastation 
against the foliage, but soon, 
drasticaly outnumbered, over- 
come by the aphids and pollen, 
the small band found itself cut 
down in a merciless slaughter. Not 
even the innocent pacifists es- 
caped the massacre. The bodies 
were flung into the trenches to 
provide fertilizer for the conquer- 
ing Roses. The Master Plan stood 
ictorious upon the field. 

Yet even so, a second student 
army, stronger than the first, was 
already gathering upon the con- 
^ demned parking lots, the Master 
Plans' next target, rallying to the 
cry of "Remember the Rose 
Garden!" Freedom could still be

In late May of 198 1, a Purolator 
armored car was robbed near 
Denver, Colorado, by a man ident- 
ified by the F.B.I. as Charlie Fat 
kids. The robbery netted Fat kids 
over $1,000,000 and to this day 
neither Fat kids nor the money 
has been recovered. 

It has come to this reporter's 
attention that Charlie Fat kids is 
currently hiding out in Hamilton 
Hall 132, disguised as an Ad- 
missions Counselor. When con- 
fronted with this information Fat 
kids denied that he had had any 
past dealings with the Purolator 
Company, legal or otherwise. De- 
spite his matching the description 
of the fugitive, Fat kids stead- 
fastly denies any knowledge of 
"the other Fat kids'" aliases - 
"Arthur Johnson," "Jeffrey Leroy 
Loveday," and "Charles W. Rice." 
Furthermore, Fat kids claims to 
have been working in a Camden, 
Arkansas clothing store during 
the time of the robbery. Which is, 
in this reporter's opinion, "a likely 
story." If Mr. Fat kids of the 
Admissions Office is not the Mr. 
Fat kids of the Purolator robbery, 
then why, I ask, does he deny 
these allegations so vehemently. 
As for the money, perhaps there is 
some hidden reason for the wor- 
ried looks which come over Mr. 
Fat kids' face whenever he passes 
the site of the proposed rose

They Go Again 

By Wee Leaks 
One of the Co- Conspirators 

Oh Gee! Guess where the 
Cemetary Kollege Choir is going 
now? They are going to China- 

Dr. Willhe Undress, director of 
the infamous 550 member group 
is, naturally, "so exited about the 
whole thing", that he can hardly 
stand it It seems that he devoted 
his entire weekend to planning the 
trip and is "pleased as punch" 
that things are going to fall to- 

Of course, Ham- it- Up Hall is 
stratigically motivated towards 
funding the overseas venture. 
Their latest brainstorm has been 
to increase tuition in order to help 
the measly bunch of lousy voca- 
lists "go behind the Iron Curtain". 
The bidness office will practice 
there usual "cheery" nature in 
collecting the additional $2,000 
per student 

You wouldn't believe the peo- 

ple they are dragging along with 
them Meal Jonsun from Looesi- 
anna Wife Magazine will be using 
up endless rolls of film on open 
mouths and pearly teeth, while 
Ducky Webfoot and wife will be 
promoting the "Positive attitude" 
that the choir exhibits. 

No doubt the people of China 
will learn a lot about the kinds of 
fools that pay their parent's life 
savings to go to the Oldest in- 
habited ruins west of the Mis- 

Don't fear that you may not get 
to catch a performance by the 
Seminary Choir before they leave. 
We couldn't be that lucky! As part 
of post-T.U.B. week, they will 
sing, and sing, and sing again each 
night in the Caf and again at 9:30 
in the Maxwell House. 

Gee! I guess we should be proud 
that a group representing our 
sleepy, boring Kollege is getting a 
chance to venture past Woodlawn 
Avenue. Hey - Maybe they won't 
come back! 

Wouldn't You Like to Be 
a Moron too? 

Dear student: 

Each spring semester we hound you to apply to serve as a Moron 
Jacket. We don't even care that we waste time and money sending 
applications to freshmen, or sophomores. . Just pretend you're a 

senior and we'll accept your applictions. We'll even consider you if you 
have a 1.50 GPA. And who cares if you're a full time student? Invite your 
friends from La. Tech, LSU-S or Tulane to apply. If you show up for at 
least one class a week, you can be a moron jacket. If you could care less 
about geek organizations or listening to people gripe in the Open Sneer 
Program, then you deserve to wear a moron jacket. Please submit your 
name, address and measurements to Enjoy Heffers. 

KGAY Changes Management 

Cemetary' s radio station, 
KGAY, has changed management 
once again. KGAY advisor, Rave 
Flogmorton, says thrilled about 
the new personeland the format 
change they will bring. 

The new station manager, Biff 
"Rough Trade" Smith, an ex-hair- 
dresser comes to KGAY from 
KFAG. a San Francisco radio 
station. Program director, John S. 
Tud, is a former student at the 
Truman Capote School of Interior 
Decorating . The new music di- 
rector is Miles Longfellow, a 
dance major and instructor at the 
Fred McMurray dance studio. 

John S. Tud says he has plans 
for the decor of the studio itself. 
"Some plants and new wallpaper 
would be nice," says Tud. Maybe 

a Hepplewhite desk in that corner 
over there," Longfellow inter- 
jects. "A lifesize poster of Judy 
Garland is a must! quips Smith. 

This reporter's big question 
deals with the format. Tud gives 
the best answer: "We plan on 
having lots of Donna Summer, 
Liza Minelli, Village People, and a 
weekly talk show with Dr. Renee 
Richards. Plus we'll have a daily 
tribute to Judy Garland." 

"Rough Trade" Smith expres- 
ses a desire to do a weekly show 
originating from a local establish- 
ment known as the "Floweren- 

Sounds like exciting stuff, guys. 
It should fit in very well with the 
atmosphere here at this high 


This sure has been a flakey 
week for the MEKE's. At our 
carwash last Saturday we raised 
almost $63,000. Can you believe ' 
it? If you do you'll probably also 
believe that we initiated almost 
ten guys. 

Our infamous Rat Races last 
weekent was a complete success. 
Some estimates put the party last- 
ing untill almost 10 p.m., but you 
can't believe everything you read. 
Right? Thanks go out to Thorndot 
Barfman for making it a very 
"special" occasion. 

And day, how 'bout that Chris 
Smurfee. Imagine winning the 
Drano award seven times in a row. 
Its just a wonderful thing and a 
milestone in our history.

The two have been seeing each

New Sorority 


By B. J. Jett 
The other Co-Conspirator 

Delton, Delton, Delton better 
known as Try- Delton, will intro- 
duce its new Delton Alpha chap- 
ter to Cemetary this semester. 
Try- Delton, one of the most 
popular national sororities, is 
expected to have an incredibly 
large Cemetary pledge class, with 
many of . the prospective pledges 
quoted as saying enthusiastically, 
"I can't wait to go Try-Delton." 

The sorority sports the colors 
Fuschia and Emerald and a crest 
bearing the words "Coke Has 
Bubbles!" The mascot is the 
mosquito, which the girls affec- 
tionately call "Skeeter." 

Try-Delton was founded in 
1979 when a group of silly, gig- 
gling teen-age girls who, when 
they decided they had nothing 

better to do, formed a sorority. In 
its first year of existence, Try- 
Delton attracted a national pledge 
class of over 1,000,000. The 
overall active membership grows 
by leaps and bounds etc. each 

The sorority's activities for the 
year 1983-84 will include their fall 
party "Buckwheat's OTAY," and 
the "Blue Daisy - Halleluliah - 
Zipidedo-dah - Spring Formal." 

Cemetary's existing Geek com- 
munity welcomes the Try- Del- 
ton's with open arms. The Phi 
Deaux official spokesgeek, ex- 
pressed her thoughts on the mat- 
ter, "I'm glad C.C. is getting a new 
sorority - that will give all of our 
rejects a place to go." 

Post Office Insists on 20-digit Zip Code 

In compliance with the new U.S. Postal System #24/9, concerning 
zip codes, Cemetary Kollege will be switching next week to a totally new 
and personalized 20-digit zip code. Added to the 9 digits already in use, 
71134-0188, will be the number of the box given to the student in 
his/her dorm, which will be three digits. Then the Student's ID number, 
4 to 5 digits, and the student's age, hopefully 2 digits. The final 1 to 2 
digits will be the student's rank in his/her class. 

The Cemetary Post Office wishes to amend the new postal system by 
adding a personal code of initials, dorm, sex, and classification, in 
letters. This should speed up the mails considerably since each zip code 
is highly individual and each code applies to one person only. 

So if you want to get those letters in a hurry, be sure to remember to 
remind all your friends, relatives, and creditors of the new change. 
Remember, Mom, I'm

Shreveport, LA 71 104 

By J. Alan Bovine 

In a recent emergency meeting 
held Wednesdays the Silly Gov- 
ernment Association agreed to ac- 
ceed to the demands of literay 
terrorists and fund the spring 
issue of Kegs 'n' Sex, Coronaty's 
illiterate magazine. 

Earlier that morning, a band of 
terrorists disguised as Pres. 
Wombat burst into a special Silly 
Government Association officer's 
meeting. Armed with leather 
whips and loaded typewriters, 
they took President Greg Black- 
eye, Vice President Child of 
Labor, and treasurer Wide 
McClutch'em prisoner. Secretary 
Wormdip Boyman was subse- 
quently released to carry the 
terrorists' demands to the Silly 
Government Association. 

Alyce Skidreaux, who immedi- 
ately seized power and pro- 
claimed herself Queen, revealed 
that the terrorists demanded the 
removal of all nuclear weapons 
from campus, the release of all 
political prisoners in Ham-it-up 
Hall, safe passage to LSU-S, and 
restoration of funding for Kegs 'n' 
Sex. If their demands went unmet 

the terrorists threatened to "hit 
Blackeye very hard until he cries." 
They also vowed to give the 
hostages nothing but Caf food to 

Representative Bobsie Gown, 
supported by Toy Pauls' son and 
Mack ("what- ever Toy wants to 
do is fine with me") Peelout, 
demanded that the question be 
put into committe for considera- 
tioa The Silly Government As- 
sociation sleepily agreed. How- 
ever, when Bobsie further pro- 
posed that a committee be formed 
to appoint the committee to con- 
sider the question, Skidreaux put 
her foot down (on a nearby 
cockroach) and declared that she 
would personally negotiate with 
the terrorists. 

Although negotiation sessions 
were held behind closed doors, 
members of the Silly Government 
Association waiting nearby sur- 
mised that the sessions proved to 
be incredibly difficult, consider- 
ing the number of moans and 
groans heard from the chambers. 
When a disheveled Skidreaux 
finally emerged, she announced 

Silly Government Association 

by Clayton Robinhood 

The Tuesday, March 22, 1983 meeting of the Silly Government 
Association was called to order at 11:10 a.m. by President Dregs 
Blackeye. The minutes of the previous meeting, few though they were, 
were approved without objection. The officer reports consisted of 
Treasurer Wide McCluth'em reporting that he wasn't sure how much 
money was in the unbudgeted reserve, but that he was sure that it would 
be enough to last the semester. Senator Toy Paul's son then moved that 
a committee of three be formed to look into the matter, with Senator 
Mack "Whatever Toy wants to do is fine with me" Peel-out seconding 
the motion. A voice vote then approved the committee's formation. 

Tuesday, the S.G.A. heard from Secretary Wormdip Boyman' s 
Entertainment Committee and Senator Spike Ragweed's Course 
Evaluation Committee. Secretary Boyman said that she wasn't sure 
what this week's S.U.B. movie was, but she urged everyone to attend. 
Senator Ragweed announced that despite the apathy of professors and 
students alike, concerning his committee's work, research was 
proceeding. And in a stunning move, the Correspondence Committee, 
formed to send letters out to professors for the Ragweed Committee, 
was disbanding, despite Senator Alyce Skidrow's motion that she be 
allowed to form a committee to sample student opinion concerning the 
disanding of the committee. 

Under "Old Business," the idea of a campus nurse vs. first aid kits 
once again surface. Talk on the matter was, however, stifled when the 
issue of funding came up. A committee of Senators Alyce Skidrow and 
Carry'em Bendman was authorized to look into the delay of the Paul's 
son Committee in reporting back to the S.G.A. concerning the infamous 
"unbudgeted reserve." And in one last stunning and innovative move, 
the Senate voted t organize itself into committees, so that it could do no 
more damage to the student body. 

The meeting was then adjourned by joint vote at 1 1:50 a.m. The civil 
liberties of the student body were now safe again, until the next Senate 

"The terrorists have dropped 
their first two demands and I thus 
consented to the other three - I 
mean two demands." 

The terrorists then released 
their prisoners, apparently un- 
harmed - though observers over- 
heard Child of Labor begging his 
captors, "Just one more time, 
guys. With the whip. Please." 
Security escorted the terrorists 
safely off- campus. 

When informed of these events, 
Kegs 'n' Sex editor Alan Bovine 
stated that he was elated at the 
restoration of funding, but that 
the terrorists were in no way 
connected with the magazine. 
Indeed, he maintained that it was 
just a coincidence that his type- 
writer and leather whip appeared 
identical to those used in the 
action, and furthermore he was 
"never near the place and they 
can't prove anything anyway." 

The Kegs 'n' Sex staff plans to 
use the funds to put out their first 
swim suit issue, complete with the 
top equestrian bikinis and a 
special "fun in the sun with your 
equestrian playmate" centerfold.

A new public awareness group 
is now making its presence felt on 
the campus of Cemetary. The or- 
ganization, calling itself Ground- 
ed Pirogue, has Dr. Naive Throt- 
tle- snortin' as its on- campus 

According to Throttle- snortin', 
Grounded Pirogue is a grass roots, 
apolitical organization dedicated 
to educating the masses about 
proper pirogue navigation and 
pirogue safety. Those students 
interested in the ideals set forth 
by Grounded Pirougue should 
contact Dr. Throttle- snortin' in 
his Library basement office im- 
mediately. Dr. Throttle- snortin' 
also has numerous pamphlets of 
interest to everyone, from the 
amateur piroguer to the profes- 
sional piroguer. The pamphlets 
indues: "Pirogue Safety and 
You,' 1 "101 Ways to Renovate 
Your Pirogue," and "Is there Life 
M'ter Piroguing?" 

Dr. Throttle- snortin' also said 
that he looked forward to the 
construction of the campus lake, 
so that piroguing could be mad 
into a P.E. course and perhaps 
I even Intramural Piroguing.

Jobs For Slobs Fair 

By Six King 

The Jobs for Slobs Fair scheduled for April Foools Day has been 
cancelled due to lack of jobs. An interview with Be My Valentine, the 
head of Cemetary' s prestigious Job Replacement Center has revealed 
that now is not the time to graduate. The Slobs Fair was originally 
scheduled for April 1 because of the anticipated depressed state of the 
economy. Why April 1? Til tell you why. April 1 is a day that only a fool 
would try to get a job during times like this and also most college 
senyors will be partying at Destin Beach during spring break, so why not 
schedule a jobs fair. After all, what they don't know can't hurt them. 

Recent national figures show that there has been significant increase 
in the number of construction workers due to the development of the 
T. L. Shame Memorial Nose Garden at Cemetery Kollege. But 
Cemetary does not not offer a construction degree unless you consider 
Willard Coops pottery class. So the cash registers office recommends 
that graduating senyors continue at Cemetary and double up on pottery 
classes during the summer. 

We Want Smut 

by Ohmickeyyou'resofine 

Are you tired of all the cutsy- 
cutsy plays being performed at 
the Playhouse? Wouldn't you 
have just loved to see Trixie 
True's mangled body dismem- 
bered in that submarine crash? 
And "Come back to the five and 
dime, whatever your name is, what 
ever your name is," now that was a 
little bit more risque, bit still on 
the cutsy side if you ask me. Come 
on MLP, whoever you are, the 
students, admisistration, and fac- 
ulty of Cemetary are all ready for 
some hard core SMUT!! I mean 
like, wow, we're all in kollege now, 
aren't we? 

Anyway, wouldn't it be great to 
be able to Cemetary' s version of 
"The Rocky Horror Picture 
Show?!" I can already see the cast: 
Deanna Bendit as Janet, Lee Or- 
gan as Brad (SSA-oh), Professor 
Dick Scott as, you guessed it Dr. 
Scott (boring!), Squint Caroon as 

Rocky (yum), Cathy Would as 
Magneta, Don Bernfart as Riff 
Raff (elbow sex), See Hawkins as 
Columbia, and B. Hinds as Frank- 
n-furter. It would be a blast! It 
would get rave reviews! It might 
even go to Washington next year 
like "My Sister In This House," 
which is about a bunch of girls 
(and we know what kind!) No one 
would miss it! It would be the best 
Carole Powell credit of the sesmeter. 

Or, if "Rocky s" not your style, 
how about a nude production of 
"Hair?" "Come on Eileen" and 
MLP- were all adults now! It sure 
would be interesting, to say the 
least! I can see it now headlines in 
all the major papers.. ."Ceme- 
tary s performance in the nude 
proves to be stimulating!" I'm 
sure it would be a BIG success. 

So let's see sotne violence, view 
some smut, and hear some really 
vulgal language! Let's truly enjoy 
a Cemetary production!

This week, the forever popular, 
forever lasting, and forever eating, 
L.S.D. Gourmet, decided to par- 
take of the Cemetary Kollege 
Food Services. These services 
include the delectable cafeteria, 
the flavorable Coffee House, and 
those magically delicious Tom's 
Candy Machines. 

The first stop that we made was 
the Bynum Commons Cafeteria. 
Upon our arrival in the caf, 
adibly harrassed L.S.D. Gourmet 
at the door because we did not 
have our ID. Cards on our person. 
After she realized that we were 
the internationally famous rest- 
aurant critics, L.S.D. Gourmet, 
the embarrassed "SCREAMIN 
PAULINE" begged our forgiveness 
and layed down the red carpet for 
us to walk upon. 

When we reached the serving 
line, we asked fellow, student, 
Aunt Baety what her favorites 
wtre, she replied, "I just love the 
rice and peas and I so wish we

C ampus Beautification 

The Campus Beautification 
Committee met this week. The 
subject up for discussion was the 
problem of ugly students. In a 
unanamous vote the Committee 
decided that all ugly students 
should remain in their rooms 
during any event where any 
Alumni would be on campus. The 
reason given was, "We don't want 
Alumni getting the wrong im- 
pression of our beautiful cam- 
pus." When asked how students 
would know if they were too ugly, 
the Committee replied, "They 

could be served these foods on a 
more regular basis." Another 
favorite among students accord- 
ing to Reese Asburry is the savory 
"grease gravy" that is served with 
each and every dish. 

Of all the people we inter- 
viewed, the majority picked 
breakfast as the most pleasant 
part of their day. Breakfast in- 
cludes such delicious delacacies 
as lead doughnuts and those in- 
creadable, eatable, egg creations. 
Coming soon to a bookstore near 
you will be the best seller, 101 
Ways to prepare the egg, by the 
famous egg chef; Fay. 

When you are too late to make 
an appearance in the caf, why not 
try the Coffee House located the 
the S.U.B., the entertainment 
capital of the world! Here you can 
dine on such items as microwave 
sandwiches and stale potato 
chips, also try the root "reeb" 
here, nothing but the finest for 
this establishment. Afterwards, 
whv not try a bag of popcorn left 

over from last weeks movie of the

"Leave it to Beaver," "Father 
knows Best," and "The P.T.L. 
Club" on wide screen T.V. Fresh-

If you are to much of a pig to eat 
in public, why not take pleasure in 
the most favorite Tom's Candy 
machines located in the nearest 
dormitory lobby. We caught so- 
phomore Mary Ann Mini- ear in 
James dorm and she was buying 
the freshly packaged Moon Pie. 
She says "I really can't see any 
other way to end my day than with 
a Moon Pie and an R.C. Cola." 
Other favorites include, "Cheese 
Bites," Oatmeal Cakes," "Peanut 
Butter Pals,"* and those totally 
awesome barbecue flavored 
"Fried Pork Rinds." 

If none of the above choices 
appeal to you, we recommend you 
call Domino's Pizza at 869-3113.

Cemetary Jocks 
Raise Money 

Surprise of the Year 

Fraidies Beat Celebrities 

Raising money for the Jock 
Department at Cemetary has al- 
ways been a problem, But Jock 
Director Walnut Stevens has 
come up with a new and inovative 
idea to keep the dome above 
water (Ducky Webbfoot has 
threatened to invert the Dome 
and turn it into a pond). The new 
fund raising program will be car- 
ried out by the people who will 
benefit from it the most - the 
alfleeks. The dude alfleeds will be 
selling illegal drugs to local jun- 
kies and the dudesses alfleeks will 
be working as escourts for con- 
ventions that come to Shrevepit. 
Stig^ s Drug Co. will be supplying 
the drugs and O.C.'s Escourt will 
arrange the dudesses dates. 
There is also room for expansion 
in the program into the area of 
drug paraphernalia if the initial 
program is successful. 

Walnut Stevens came to Cem- 
etary in 1981 as the Development 
Counselor in charge of raising 
alfleek scholarships and has never 
had too much success untill now. 
"I'm really excited about this 
concept for fun raising. When Mr. 
Stigg came to me with the idea I 
was skeptical but he showed me 
how other programs of this nature 
have worked at schools such as 
U.T. And he's got some good junk 
and the dudes are really excited 
about selling the stuff. I tried it 
out for a week before I made the 
final decision to go ahead with it" 
Walnut also said that the dudes- 

Last Monday night's exhibition 
game between the Cemetary Fraid- 
ies basketball team and the Celebri- 
ty All- Stars was s "down to the wire" 
contest with the Fraidies winning 

The game began in controversy 
when All-star guard Secertary of the 
Interior James Watt was called on a 
technical foul for his pre- game antice 
of cutting down four tree s cutting 
down a rosebush, cutting down 
George Bush, cutting down ethnic 
groups, shaving Althea, insulting 

short presidents After Zipper 

Hatcher made the free throw the 
Fraidies jumped out to an 8-4 lead 
Then the All- stars leading "scorer" 
rocker Wendy 0. Williams got "hot" 
and popped in ten unanswered field 
goald amking the score 24-8 in favor 
of the celebs. Williams, who took the 
meaning of "exhibition" seriously, 
had to leave the game at this point to 
• comb her Mohawk 

First Lady JNancy Keagan replac- 
ed Williams at forward with ten 
minutes left in the first half They 
took advantage of this opportune 
situation with Cent Davis, Temple 
Rathips, and Dancing Hulktwist 
combining for 30 points and Hatch- 
er tossing in 14 of her own The 
teams went in to the locker tombs 
with a 52-24 Fraidy lead

sisted of a tag team wrestling match 

between the Bored of Trustys and

Kummizzerate Staff will soon be

The second half began with 
John Wayne making a special 
ghost appearance for the All- Stars. 

' The Duke paved the way for the 
Celebs come-back efforts with 30 
points. The All- stars were on a roll 
with the score tied at 60 all when 
Fraidy Linda Howitzer called

Wendy O. 

The last five minutes was "a 
battle of the 'T's" featuring All- 
star Mr. T pitted against Ceme- 
tary's own "T'Gimmesumslack 
After answering each other basket 
for basket the two wound up in a 
fist fight. Mr. T won the fist fight 
with a series of left hooks and said 
"I pity the woman who dares to 
call herself a TV' The defeated 
"T" mustered enough energy to 
sink the winning free throws and 
then collapsed at the top of the

ses were a bit harder to sell the 
idea to bflt they changed their 
minds when they were told they 
would be supplied with free drugs. 

When asked if the drugs would 
be sold on campus Walnut said 
definately not, but that if a 
student wished to make a pur- 
chase to call a dude and have them 
meet across from the tennis 
courts by Hardon Field. That 
brought up the question of 
whether the drugs would be al- 
lowed on campus. Dean Dandy 
Randers said that the same policy 
that applies to liquor would apply 
to the drugs - just be discrete.
